Ta-dah! Tuesday - Angry Birds Cake

Hello! Everything needs to be packed up by tomorrow, so this is another scheduled post. Please do link up as usual though, and I'll read all your posts and comments when I can. Remember that the second I'd finished Boy1's birthday cake I had to start thinking about Boy2's? I was really pleased with how it came out in the end, even if it was held  together with cocktail sticks and royal icing 'cement'.





The fudge 'bricks' are hiding a multitude of fondant icing sins. I really must find out how you cover a round cake with roll-out icing without getting tablecloth-like wrinkles. Still, was robust enough to make it intact to the bowling alley party we had on Sunday morning. [Twelve children between 4 and 8 years old, extremely excited, at a time of day when you can still taste toothpaste. Moving all our worldly goods 60 miles round the M25 should be easy by comparison]


I've been asked recently about the 'rules' for Ta-dah! Tuesday. Just to say again that there really aren't any - anything you've been doing and are pleased with is fine, from outfits to art, makes to bakes, second hand finds to garden growth. I'd appreciate a comment rather than a link and run, and it's nice if you can visit some other participants, but anything goes really.

  5. The cake is perfect!! I usually bake the cake for my littlest daughter because she's intolerant to eggs and the fondant icing is something I would love to try but I was too afraid to do because of all the wrinkles, the idea of the fudge bricks is brilliant, with normal cream decorations the final effect wasn't so pleasant this year, so I'll probabily give it a try!
    Love xxxxxxxxxxx

  9. Your cakes aways look so professional, I can tell you put love into them! Good luck with the move, try to stay calm as it can be so stressful. (I go ballistic when we move freaking out about forgetting things, then they wind up in weird places in the house -- damn faerie-festation!) I hope you have many new happy memories in your new home!

  14. You're a dark horse! These cakes are just fantastic. I don't think a professional would do any better, and I bet it tasted lovely.

  16. Wonderful. My grandson would have loved that too! The very best of luck with the move. It's not easy with small children; I know as I did it several times when mine were little.

  26. That is a fantastic cake. I am terrified of roll-out icing! I hope the move goes wonderfully smoothly.

  27. Super cake- water and rubbing seems to work for me on the icing! My sister in law used to roll onto a mix of icing sugar and cornflour!

  28. I thought of making you a "new home" cake but decided to cook you dinner on moving day instead as my cake making ability does not come close to yours. Happy Moving Day. xxx

  29. This cake is better than most you could buy, way to go girl! I bet the boy was happier than a boy with cake on his Birthday!

  30. Consider yourself well and truly arse-squeezed. I'm ashamed to show anyone the monstrosity I made for The Phoenix's birthday early last month, a walk of shame I will be repeating tomorrow when #3 Son turns 12.

  31. Lakota - you have excelled yourself! I'd be chuffed to bits if I had produced that little wonder!!

    Best of luck with the move - we're moving ourselves inside three weeks so the place is chaotic at present with boxes all over the shop - hope that all goes smoothly for you! :-)
