Feeling A Little Angry?

We aren't but we sure do love Angry Birds in this house! For Red's birthday he asked for an Red Angry Bird Cake (he loves everything red!)
For the cake I used rice crispies for the bottom half for support, I pressed the rice crispie treats (home made) into a glass bowl the size I wanted the cake to be and let harden. Then I turned it out frosted and put layers of cake on top and sculpting the cake to make a sphere. Frosted the entire thing, used straws as supports, and used my homemade marshmallow fondant to cover (red fondant is chocolate fondant). Red wanted a picture with the cake when it was half done...guess he was really proud of it that far :)

Right before guests come  I add the finishing touches, the beak, top feathers and tail feathers all had gumtex added to the fondant an were let to harden on tooth picks so they would hold their shape when put on the cake.



We celebrated Red's birthday by going to the splash park with a big slip and slide!
