Angry, angry birds

It seems that many of my most recent posts start with something to the tune of "so sorry for the lack of posts!". Last year was incredibly busy, and while I made a lot of cakes and cupcakes, I was really terrible at sharing them. All of that is about to change - this is going to be the last time I apologize for being MIA. I have big plans for this year, and a lot to share - stay tuned for lots of sweet treats.

So without further ado - my most recent cupcakes!

If you haven't played Angry Birds yet - you are certainly missing out. It's a super addictive game, in which you slingshot a variety of birds at different structures, trying to destroy evil green pigs that stole your eggs.

The idea for angry birds cupcakes came about back in November, while at a tech conference with two of my friends. Someone posed the question, "Hey, wouldn't it be awesome if we had angry birds cupcakes for our next major release?!" Umm, totally awesome!

The birds were made completely out of fondant, and sat on top of vegan cinnamon smores cupcakes with vanilla buttercream (also vegan!).

Angry birds, in progress

Finished, and looking mighty angry (and the pig, looking terrified)

All together, now

The idea guys, Jeff and Dave
