It's SMALL FAN's 6 years old birthday and he requested for an angry bird cake for his birthday party. I kinda check out the market and it cost $100 plus to $200 to ordered one. So I thought maybe I can try making one myself. First of all I cut down on the $$$$ and I also get to control what goes in the cake.
I'm not a really good baker, not too confident of making fondant angry birds, so decided to buy the angry bird toy to use as the decoration. I killed 2 birds with one stone on this, first of all, I can cut down on the time making the birds and also, I won't end up with a few coloured, sugar birds that I don't know what to do with it (don't think I will let my kids eat it since it will be loaded with sugar and colouring) but best of all, the angry bird toy can be clean up and given to SMALL FAN as his birthday present.
Bought this angry bird toy set from Gmarket, the cataput comes with the angry bird theme song and sound...really cool. Check in out below.
Here's what I did to make the cake. I use my favourite Chocolate Oatmeal Cupcake recipe to make the cake base. I make about 3 portion of 7 inch cake. Then I cut out the desired shape and cover it with my buttercream frosting which I coloured green. Then I use whatever remaining cakes I have and form it into a square block using buttercream frosting as the glue. Then I covered the block with a brown fondant that I bought from Phoon Huat, they have their own house version call REDMAN fondant, which cost $7 for a 500g pack. Finally I decorated the cakes with the angry bird toys, some kitkat and a lovely happy birthday candles, and use a little of the brown fondant to make my SMALL FAN's name. Wah lah...my proud creation!
I think the kids really love the cake, cause this is what is remain of the cake.
To complete the angry bird theme, I also made an Angry Bird Pinata for him. The kids have a great time destroying it!
