Playable Angry Birds cake

FeaturedContest Winner
video Playable Angry Birds cake
It’s become a family tradition that I make increasingly ridiculous birthday cakes for my kids each year. So with my little boy Ben turning 6-years-old over the weekend, and appreciating his love of Angry Birds, I thought I’d have a shot a making him a playable Angry Birds birthday cake with working catapult and iced birds as ammunition. You can watch the making of video as well as the rapid demolition. It took 10 hours to make and 2 minutes to destroy.

That was cool! But I wish you could just say how you made it step by step :)
What catapult did you use?
Just a regular slingshot. He just mounted it extremely well into the cake so you wouldn't have to hold it down when you fired.

Brilliant, deffo the best cake I've ever seen.
That's totally awesome! I wish my dad did that, but we just buy small tiny cakes at Genuardi's food. Someone should make a cut the rope cake (if thats possible), have a small string, hanging a round cake ball and cut the rope with different obstacles, into the mouth of the green monster.
Well done

Just a small question... what did you make your slingshot out of?

You say your tradition is to make increasingly ridiculous cakes, yet how are you going to top this one?!
I wouldn't be able to destroy a work of cake art like that!! Nice work!

You have inspired me to make my own game themed cake. It's going to be a Jenga cake because it will most likely fall apart as I try to build it, and then I'll give up and kick it across the room, then have to spend a bunch of time picking up pieces.
if you have a dog this will not be an issue, (picking up the pieces).

nice cake, my kid want one now, chuckle.
Hmmm...... Maybe use Coffee Crisps and/or Kitkats as blocks and actually play Jenga with the cake.
less cake, then, than candy tower of awesomeness - definitely still worth a try!
If you use nutty buddy bars (the peanut butter crisp bars) it would work great... dunno how big it would end up being though

Wow! What a dedicated dad- and you know the way to a young boy's heart! LOADS of fun and an amazing creation. Surely you have photos of past birthday cakes.... can we have a slideshow?
This is EPIC.

Also, you're not only an truly awesome Dad, you have adorable kids.
I just hope they realize how lucky they are.
