made this cake a while ago, but haven’t got the time to post it here 😉
the big cake in the middle is 2kilos, and the smaller birds are cupcakes – all cakes are strawberry flavoured cakes..love em! 😀 I didn’t have any special dome cake pan, so I just used my round pans and carved the head of the red bird 😉 all birds were carved and covered with buttercream, the red butter cream however is strawberry flavoured too (my customer really loves strawberries :D) and yeah, I sandwiched the cake layers with strawberry jam..this is one STRAWBERRYLICIOUS cake! 😀 I’ve posted the strawberry cake recipe earlier, really simple to try 😉
for the big cake / the red bird I used the piping technique to cover the cake (usually I just smooth my buttercream on the cake, but it doesn’t hurt to try something new ;), the smaller cakes – 5 of them all together: blue bird, white bird, black bird, yellow bird and green bird are also covered in butter cream (just vanilla flavoured) 😉 all the birds’ beaks are done with candy stripes cut to desired shape 🙂
I had great fun making this cake 😉 the customer, Nur from Pekan also loves the cake 🙂 YAY!
funny thing: after crumb coating the big red bird, my son have a peek and was angry at me, saying I should make a bird, not “oink oink”…haha 😀
a happy family of angry birds 😀 😀 😀
a friend commented that my angry bird doesn’t look angry enough, and it looks “manja” (sweet)..I agree 😀 well, it IS for a birthday after all, so we would want happiness and cheerfulness, not ‘angriness’, rite 😉 hehehe 😀
