Angry Birds, must admit that I did not know much about the characters. The request for an Angry Bird themed birthday cake was one I could not turn down because it came from none other than one of my favorite students. Like I always say, some of your best ideals and inspirations will come from your customers. So for me, it was not simple. You see, I did not want to disappoint the birthday boy or his friends. I knew they would be looking for “Bad Piggies.” They like to party, their dance moves are always on point, they can build things. Hmm…I knew I had to include “Red Bird,” “Blue Jake,” “Chuck (Yellow Bird),” “Bubbles (Orange Bird),” and my personal favorite- “King Pig!”
The cake was four layers of white cake covered with chocolate frosting on the inside. I did take a chance and worried that perhaps the chocolate would show through the white fondant but I was lucky! Everything on the cake was edible, including the sling shot. I used fondant which I don’t usually use for a children’s cake but I wanted to have a clean, sheer finish. Remember, purchase high quality fondant. Also, I use only the best ingredients. For the image on the cake I used a Epison printer and edible ink.

These green guys have a lot going for them. They like to party, their dance moves are always on point, they can build things. Absolutely nothing suspicious here!
