Stick a couple of these adorable Angry Birds Cake Pops in your Angry Birds party favor cups (yesterday’s post) and your take-home birthday party favor will be a huge hit with the kids. They’ll take some time to make, but they’re not as hard as you think. Many thanks to the-girl-who-ate-everything.com for this great Angry Birds party idea.
Head on over to her website for complete instructions, but here’s the basics. Start with a box cake and store bought vanilla frosting. Crumble the cake and mix with 3/4 of the frosting, and shape into your birds. The secret here are candy melts that you melt as per the package directions. Use a little to secure the lollipop stick into the cake pop and, once that has set a bit in the frig, then dip the pops in the various Angry Birds colored melted candy. You’ll need a piece of styrofoam to stick your pops in to harden. Once solid, decorate for beaks, eyebrows and eyes with candy pieces, as per the instructions, using more melted candy as glue.
If cookies are more your thing than working with candy, take a look at the cookies on sweetsugarbelle.com. The simple geometric shape of the Angry Birds makes these professional looking cookies easy to replicate with colored cookie icing. If you really want to pursue making professional looking cookies like this, here’s a great tutorial on the icing that makes it all possible.
Both the Angry Birds Cake Pops or giant sugar cookies would be a great together party prep project for you and your birthday child. They’ll be so proud when its time to present these wonderful favors that he or she helped to make.
