Angry Birds Cake

Every year I make The Cisco Kid a theme cake for his Birthday. He loves the Angry Birds games. So Angry Birds cake it is.

I found a new cupcake cake mix that I bake it into a cake instead of the cupcakes. It's by Betty Crocker and it's called Fun da-middles. They are cupcakes with cream baked inside. Instead of putting the batter in cupcake cups I put the batter in a cake tin. To make The Cisco Kids Cake I used two boxes so the cake is nice and tall. I used lots of different kinds of chocolate bars to make the structure. I made all the Angry Birds characters out of molded chocolate. Then I covered the cake with putter cream icing.

Wonderful Butter Cream Icing.  Publix recipe.
