Angry Bird Fever

Followed by my first visit to Miri's Orphanage (see my previous post titled "Handmade Cookies Specially for Orphans" ), I've made another visit again today. Since my husband flew to Miri this weekend, I've time to bake the more challenging stuffs for the kids :).

Its Angry Birds fever everywhere now. A happy fever that spread so fast and entertained a big crowd all over the world seriously. I was a victim to its addiction too and enjoyed cracking level after level. The love for the cute game even made me create cupcakes for orphans, which themed "Angry Bird" design cupcake with fondant icing. At first, I'm quite doubtful the kids know about Angry Bird. To my surprise, they all were so exciting and fight to get the "red" angry bird!! I almost burst laughter but in the same time, few compliments that touched me are "If I eat this angry bird cupcakes, then I do not have this anymore!!". Some even said "You see, I eat the angry bird part by part, starts from ear, eyes, and nose". The way of the other kids amused me was he pulled out the angry bird, finished the whole vanilla cupcake and wallop the whole angry bird in a mouthful!!! Anyway, I really glad to see them enjoy my wholehearted creations, it makes me feel a huge success.

Fondant, in my initial thought, it's absolutely difficult for me especially I do not attend any baking classes or culinary training before. After this bake today, it proves my perception is totally wrong. Fondant is really easy to make from scratch !!!Below are my angry bird family close-up individually.

Red Bird – The most common bird and the most popular in Angry Birds.

Black Bird – One of the strongest birds in this game because this one is fat it tends to destroy things on where it lands and after that, Kaboom!

Yellow Bird – Our favorite, because of its lightning dash and absolute cuteness.

White Bird – a special type of bird because this one lay down egg on any unlucky target and after that it will burst.

Green Bird – Also known as the Boomerang Bird and it looked like a Toucan. It can destroy woods and glass easily but has a hard dealing with rocks.

Blue Bird – Small but definitely awesome this one is also known as the Replicate Bird.

For those who don't know what is Angry Bird - (doubt so)
Angry Birds is a puzzle video game developed by Finland-based Rovio Mobile. Inspired primarily by a sketch of stylized wingless birds, the game was first released for Apple's iOS. Since that time, over 12 million copies of the game have been purchased from Apple's App Store, which has prompted the company to design versions for other touchscreen-based smartphones, such as those using the Android Operating system, among others.
