Angry Birds

My son turned 6 in March.  He ordered up an Angry Birds cake complete with “a king pig, a mustache pig, and a few birds”.  He also wanted chocolate cake with chocolate icing and a special chocolate surprise in the middle.

So I went to work on the fondant birds and pigs…IMG_0006I used an edible marker for their faces since I didn’t allow myself enough time to actually make faces.  But the Birthday Boy was pretty please, especially with the “king pig”.  He also thought the sling was pretty cool.

I made his special birthday cake which is chocolate and used my chocolate buttercream and iced the cake smooth.  I tinted vanilla buttercream green for his birthday message.

Trains and Holiday Sale

A customer wanted to have a boy and a girl train for a birthday party that she was throwing for her daughter and her friend’s son.  I was so excited.  This is my most favorite cake to decorate.  We decided on red and blue for the boy cake…

and pink and purple for the girl cake…

The cake is yellow butter cake with chocolate buttercream.  I tinted white icing for the colorful accents.  I used fudge stripes mini cookies for the wheels, shoe string licorice for the cow catcher and train ties, various candies for the cars to carry, and rollos and Hershey kisses for the smoke stack.  Oh and don’t forget the Oreos for fuel!  It’s a fun cake, no matter what age you are!
