Yes, you read that right! I can’t even believe it, but I pulled it off.

This week has been a birthday week. First we had our own little party for D at home. Just the three of us. It was a nice time. Then we had a friend party for D and J on Friday, another birthday party for our friend Ken on Saturday and a family party for D and J on Sunday.

Whew. 

Wednesday through Thursday I was in 8-5:30 training, and on Thursday night we had a dinner with all the students and speakers. This left me little to no time to pull off a birthday party. Thank goodness for my sister-in-law, she offered to have the party at her house and do all the decorating. I bought most of the decorations before hand to try and help out and most of the food was bought already cooked. Also, she made the base of the cake, because I didn’t have the time, or to be honest, a rectangular pan to make the cake in.

In the end this left me the actual angry birds to make, after the class, and the cake to decorate right before the party.

I was up until 12:30 making my army of angry birds, but I think they came out pretty good. The cake I planned was a hybrid of the two shown here.

To make the angry birds I used Sara Lee frozen pound cake (defrosted) and frosting to make the cake balls and covered them with colored candy melts. (Note: if you use Wilton candy melts, add some oil to get a smooth and even coating) Gum paste to make the ears, snouts, beaks, eyes, crown, eggs, nest and logs. Black licorice to make the eyebrows, and tail/head feathers. And edible markers to draw on some of the black marks.

I followed this video from Bakerella to help make the cake balls properly, it was very helpful.

Friday night, the cake was all pieced together, and came out AH-MAZING. A Bakerella, or Jen T I am not, but I am still so proud!

      Oh you should get one!! I actually bought mine from Stop and Shop. It was on one of those hanging things randomly near the other candles in the isle. $6.99 and worth every penny! Also I think you can order them from Send Out Cards.
