I'm pretty sure that any decent cake maker has probably come across this playable angry birds cake. So when an ex-colleague of my husband's wanted to get an angry bird's themed cake for her boy's birthday, we decided to put ourselves up for the challenge and make him a cake which her little boy can play!
This cake is like my husband's dream cake. He was the engineer/architect/builder/brains behind this entire set up. yours truly was merely just the worker. he started weeks ago sourcing for materials and spent many a sleepless night thinking of how to construct a stable sling shot which can take a certain amount of brutality from the birthday boy. He literally got some pieces of wood and manually sawed it into a slingshot shape, tested different elastic bands to find the perfect one for this cake, and even constructed a special cake board to fit his "contraption". It was truly ALL his hard work. : )
This was one of the rare times where my part of the work was so much easier than his ; P. and i'm glad to say that i was more efficient at molding the birds and pigs after having done an angry birds cake before.
Here's a video of our first playable angry bird cake!
