This just in ... Angry Birds play golf!


My friend Keerthi threw her husband Aravind a fabulous party for this 40th birthday - and of course she needed a special cake to end the night on a sweet note!   We decided to incorporate two of Aravind's favorite things - Angry Birds and golf - into the design for a small cutting cake.  The cake was chocolate with cappuccino cream filling, and was accompanied by red velvet and car bomb cupcakes for everyone to enjoy.  Everything on the cake (well, except for the flag pole!) is handmade and edible.







Also - don't forget to head on over to the Pure Joy Events blog to check the second part of my guest post this month - the recipe for the flaky, delicious tart shell for the Meyer lemon Mother's Day tart!

Do you make your fondant from scratch or purchase it? Ive heard making it from scratch is a long process. What do you suggest?

@Red30 - thank you so much!! :)

@erin - I buy my fondant; I go through so much of it, and need consistency. It's not *that* bad to make - check out this recipe on Cake Central, that uses marshmallows and confectioner's sugar: http://cakecentral.com/articles/105/mmf-how-to-decorate-cake-marshmallow-fondant. There are other methods as well, but this one is pretty easy to get started with.
