Angry Birds Cake & Cupcake Toppers

Maybe you've been in these shoes of mine.

Our 4-year old has been asking me in his sweetest, most optimistic little voice ...

... every single day for the past eight weeks ...

"Today my BIRFday????"

"No, but pretty soon!" I've replied ...

...every single day for the past eight weeks!

And each time, without fail, 1) out comes his lower lip and 2) in his best whiney/demanding voice...

"my birfday TO-DAY!"

Well, I COULDN'T TAKE IT ANYMORE! I just couldn't take it.

So you know what!?

He got it.

Today he got his "birfday." We celebrated it 19 days early.

And IT'S OVER AND DONE WITH, and mom couldn't be happier.

When it comes to birthdays, my kids pick out the theme months in advance. Our little man's choice for his 5th birthday was Angry Birds. No problem! With fondant, you can create anything.

A big thank you goes out to my sister-in-law for helping me pull off a last-minute party and for making these Angry Bird cupcake toppers.

I've shared in past posts how I use fondant and food coloring for creating toppers for cakes and cupcakes. It's a fun, easy, and flexible medium to work with—we just don't eat the stuff (the combination of the corn syrup and sugar in the fondant and the artificial colors in the dyes spell one big fat tummy ache). The kids know it's "just for decoration."

Well, we had a great little party and our guy was absolutely thrilled with his cupcakes. We thought they were pretty stinkin' cute, too! So had to share them with you.
