It finally happened.

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.

  1. What a spectacular arrangement of angry birds (and pigs)! Your cake is just wonderful! Actually, everything you created for this lucky little seven year old is wonderful. The cookies, cake pops, cupcakes. There was a lot of work that went into all the details of this party but for someone who loves the angry birds as much as you do I’m sure you had a lot of fun doing everything. The birthday girl must have been overjoyed.

    • Thanks, Paula. It was fun! I think my favorite thing is making the fondant characters for the cake. I don’t get to do a ton of those, so it’s always great when I do.

      Thanks for your continued support.

  2. I just started following your blog! Amazing… you did a fantastic job on the angry birds and all the accessories to go with it! :)

  3. Omg. Im throwinga bday for my son hes turning 1 and I cant find nothing of angry birds this is a first I love this

  4. Your did an awesome Job! My litttle girl want a angry bird party.. How do you make the icing for the cookies so shiny too You must be a pro !! Congrats!! : )

    • Thank you! =)

      I use a heat gun sometimes when I have a lot of small detail work to do, and I have found that it gives the icing a little shine. I also use corn syrup in my icing, and that also gives it a little shine.

      Good luck on your party!

  5. I need you! I have an obsessed 4-year-old who is turning 5 at the end of July. I share your OCD. We spent an entire day making Angry Bird krispie balls for his preschool party. I can’t imagine how long it took you to do all that. So I have two questions…how quickly can you get here, and how much do you charge?!?!

    • Ha! I completely understand about how long it takes. These were not the fastest things I’ve ever made. =)

      But just keep on working on them. You’ll get it done! Make sure to share pictures when you do!
