Introduction: 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.

    I've been looking to make a Minecraft cake that can be constructed like a Minecraft building (the sort my 14 yr-old makes) for his Birthday, and from your photo it looked like you'd made some perfectly close-textured cake for your columns & lintels, until I realised these were chocolate-covered wafers. Thanks for the idea!

    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.

    You are the best father ever. This is adorable, and amazing.

    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?
