A simple and impressive 5 tiered Angry Birds cake perfect for any Angry Birds party!
Why I made this Angry Bird Cake
When I first start talking about birthday party themes with my kids we start with the cake design. So when Paul wanted an angry bird party it’s the first thing we decided on.
Lego boy drew this design out himself! He wanted each tier to be a different bird. I wish I still had the sketch to show you, it was so cute!
Originally he wanted EVERY bird from the game on different tiers, but there are way too many birds now and that cake would be way too big!
So we cut it down to the original five birds! These tier sizes are 4, 6, 8, 10 and 12 inches. I had SO much fun making each layer.
The best news is this cake is SUPER simple to make. I recommend using cake dummies for the layers you don’t need for serving so you can still get the great look of a 5 tiered cake without all the cake!
I started with the thin, small details for each bird, the red under eye are on The Blues, the cheek spots on Red, the grey eye circles on Bomb and the cheeks on Matilda.
Then I cut out the eyes for each bird by hand and then their beaks (thicker this time). Then black circles for their pupils.
Finally I used my extruder to squeeze out a thin black fondant rope and placed it around all the details. You could also do the black first as a full layer, then just add the eyes and beaks over the top it would create a fun 3D effect too.
Just take me to the instructions already!
