Hi. My name is Tara. And I am an Angry Birds addict.
I have all 3 aps. 3 stars in all of them. I know, I know. But I need something to do while waiting in carline to pick up the kids, right?
I have been dreaming of Angry Birds in sugary configurations for over a year now, but I’ve just never had the opportunity to make them. So when a friend called and said that she was throwing a first-ever party for her 7-year-old daughter, an Angry Birds party, I was ready. And when she said she wanted to “go nuts”, my heart about stopped.
So go nuts we did.
**DISCLAIMER: Please forgive the background. There was only so much I could do with the table in the middle of a multi-purpose room.
First was the cake. I could make these little fondant figures all day long. The perfect outlet for my OCD.
And we couldn’t forget the GOLDEN EGG!
Next were the cookies. They ended up taking longer than I had expected. The pigs were ok, the the birds were quite pesky. After about 8 or 10, I ended up completely starting over because I wasn’t happy with the way they were turning out. I’m glad I did, though, because these look much better than the first found.
And since we were using them for the goodie bags, they were all wrapped up and ready to go!
She decided not to eat the cake at the party, but to save that for her actual birthday. So we did a cupcake tower for all the kids to eat there.
She bought some plastic toppers, but there weren’t enough for everyone, so we just used them as filler.
And the birthday girl (who is my youngest daughter’s BFF) has been
harassing asking me to make Angry Birds cake pops for almost a year, so those were a must.
For extra decorations, we used apothecary jars and tumblers filled with gum balls, rock candy sticks (which I sprayed with Wilton sprays to get the nice, bright colors), gummy worms and twirl suckers. I also made some extra royal icing birds and pigs, and those looked super cute on a stick!
For the drinks, we used different flavors of Kool-aid in mini water bottles. Custom labels and striped straws finished off the look!
She made the cutest decorations. Birds & pigs out of balloons with faces! Too cute! And I forgot to take a picture of the centerpieces. They were these fabulous nests with golden eggs and a stuffed angry bird (of which she had MANY) in the middle. It was darling.
We were both happy with the way everything turned out.
And I’ve gotten my Angry Bird fix for a LONG time.
Well, at least in edible form. Bring on the updates.
