So yesterday was my Husband Alex’s birthday and I really wanted to make him a nice cake. He always sees so many cakes being made, but never actually gets to eat them himself, so I wanted to make one especially for him. I find thinking of themes for men’s cakes quite difficult, but I finally decided on an Angry Birds themed cake, making a 3D version of the red bird…

I was so happy with how this cake turned out. If was a fairly simple design, made of a 3D ball cake which was coconut and cherry flavoured sponge with white chocolate ganache. I covered the cake with red icing / fondant, my main tip when colouring icing with red gel paste is use the double concentrate colour as it doesn’t require much paste to get the desired colour. All the rest of the details were also icing / fondant, so the cake was completely edible. The photo below shows the tail/feathers that I added to the back.

This is such a good cake for both adults and children and I really enjoyed making it for Alex and it was a really nice day, so Happy Birthday!
