Lucky Kid Gets Playable Angry Birds Cake [Video]

If you’re a six-year-old that loves Angry Birds we’re not sure you could get a better cake than a playable Angry Birds mock-up.

It’s one thing to make a static Angry Birds cake, that takes a certain level of cake baking skill. It’s another thing altogether to make a cake that is a playable mock-up of the game, complete with slingshot and avian projectiles.

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. […] It took 10 hours to make and 2 minutes to destroy.

    I want to know is how he is going to get the Yellow bird to speed up in mid air; not to mention the little Blue Birds to split into three in mid air. ;-)

    Great work!

    Awesome !!!!!! What a great idea and very sweet for parents tot ake the time to make and work that out. They’re not “spoiled” kids, they are treasured as they should be !

    @Will – that’s just mean. He’s not spoilt, he just has a father who is caring enough to take the time to make a cake that gave Ben a really good birthday.

    @ Will
    If your father didn’t love you. that’s your problem. but please, don’t make stupid comments about nice things like this.

    That is so frickin awesome!

    And I have to agree that the kid is not spoiled for getting a cake like this. This is just two wonderfully loving parents putting hard-work and thought into their child’s birthday celebration to create memories.

    I promise that Ben will remember this for a long time very fondly not because he simply got a cake of Angry Birds but because it was something that his parents put a lot of thought into and was able to share with him as a experience.

    Great Work!! I too, enjoy making special cakes for my kids. Too bad they both just had their birthdays. I may just have to make one of these, just for the heck of it. Thanks for sharing!
