My adorable nephew turned 6 this weekend! When my sister-in-law asked him what theme he wanted for his party, his answer was his current obsession – Angry Birds.
An obsession I know NOTHING about.
So, when Isabel asked me to make Angry Birds cupcakes (yellow ones only, as per her request) I had some research to do. Luckily, I came across this blog post that helped me out a bit. I made a few adaptations, and was pretty happy with the result!
I used my standard yellow cake recipe, colored my buttercream frosting yellow (topped with some yellow sparkly sugar), and used the following for the faces:
Twizzlers black licorice nibs: I cut them in 3’s, lengthwise, and used 2 pieces for the eyebrows, and one for the top of the head
Mini marshmallows: I cut them in half and used them for the base of the eyes
Mini chocolate chips: went on top of the marshmallows
Orange slices: I cut them into small triangular pieces for the beaks
A bit time consuming, but totally worth it! They were a big hit.
Happy birthday Petey!!
