Angry Bird Fondant Cake for a 60 Year Old


Today is mom's best friend's birthday. Aida, who also happens to be my God Mother and is truly a very special lady! She helped raise us and I love her very much. I wish her a very special 60th Birthday today!

A few weeks ago her daughter told me she was secretly addicted to the Angry Birds Game... So she asked if I would make her an Angry Birds Themed Cake. Ooops, I guess she has now been outed, I hope she's not ANGRY! Hehehehe, Oink, snort!

So here it is... I'm pretty happy with how it turned out!!!

For those of you that are curious about how I made it, here are a few pictures I took of the cake along the way. I'll just briefly explain them.
  • The first thing I started with was modeling chocolate. Click here for the recipe. Once the chocolate was ready I rolled out some different sized balls. At this point, I also made my wood logs. (Leave all your pieces to air dry overnight)
  • Once the chocolate had hardened, I covered the balls with different colors of fondant. (I didn't by all these different colors, I just started with white fondant and mixed it with icing colors until I achieved the color I wanted)   
  • Then all that is left are the details on the birds. (I referred to a picture I had printed to that I could look at) 
  • Bake, ice and cover your cake with a crumb coat.
  • Cover the cake with the fondant and have fun assembling!
That's pretty much it! These kinds of cakes can be time-consuming. This one took me about 6 hours to make, but it's so worth the end result! Hope she is going to like it!


I hope you like my take on the Angry Birds Cake!
Have a great weekend :)
