Instead of a birthday cake, these Angry Birds cupcakes will delight the kids– and if you make enough they can even be your party favor take-home. Big thanks to the ladies over at craftingchicks.com for their culinary creativity and for sharing. They’ve even got a full blown tutorial over on their site for you to help you make these cute little guys! And to make the naughty pigs too.
Nothing hard to find that you need: sprinkles and colored sugar, black licorice rope, mini and regular sized marshmallows, chocolate chips, gummy orange slices (for the beaks), jelly beans, frosting and gel food coloring (gel coloring gives more intense color). Plus your cupcakes.
The sprinkles and sugars give the cupcakes a more avian texture than just the frosting, but that is perhaps an embellishment you can skip if necessary.
These are so very simple to make, they look great, and should prove what I’ve always been saying: that any basically geometric based graphic is easy to reproduce, and requires virtually no artistic talent. So don’t think you can’t do this- you CAN!!
Wrap the extras up in colored cellophane with a nice curly ribbon to make it festive, and your party favors are all taken care of. If you can make 1 dozen to serve at the party, you can easily make 2 dozen to have the second bunch for take-home party favors for the kids.
Think a bit outside the box when it comes to your kids party food. You may think it’s necessary to have a birthday cake, but when the option is this cute and this perfect for your party theme, the kids will never miss that cake!
