Happy Birthday Dude!
Last week Friday was my Dude’s 6th birthday.
He’s my baby! And he’s 6! :noes:
And Dude wanted an Angry Birds themed birthday. Some of you may know that once upon a time I was a Cake Decorator, now a days I only do it twice a year. Dude’s birthday and a month later, Chicka’s birthday, so I tend to try and make it special. Its fun for them and for me 🙂
So this year I made Angry Birds fondant toppers for his chocolate cupcakes, he’s in an all boys Kindergarten and they were a hit!
Before you ooo and ahhh those were my first ever fondant sculpts so if I can do it anyone should lol. Then the cake is just a sheet cake (again he wanted all chocolate) iced with chocolate fudge frosting then some green tinted butter cream that I piped on with the grass tip. The “wood” structures are vanilla wafer cookies.
I thought the cake was destined for the bin after that first pic but the grass sure brought it together!
I worked on all of this over the course of 3 days. It might seem like a lot of time but my son was so excited and he told me he thought it was the best cake ever, which made every hour worth it 🙂
Now I’m going to go snuggle him and nuzzle his short hair and pretend he’s tiny again.
Until he mentions burbs and toots.
That kills the illusion.
