Gum paste Angry Birds Cake Toppers Tutorial
These gum paste angry birds cake toppers are a great addition to kids birthday cakes. Kids love this movie and are always excited to have them on the cake. While they a few in number these are extremely simple and easy to make. Here are a few progress pictures.
I had an order for these gum paste angry birds. These were for a five year old who loves these birds and wanted to have the figures on her cake.The mother wanted to make the cake herself but couldn't make the birds. So I made the birds for her.
I always thought that these were all the same shape; round in different colors. But now that I went to make them I realized that each and every one of them is unique and very different from the other.
Gum Paste Vs Fondant
Always make cake toppers with either edible gum paste or with fondant and cmc added to it. That way the toppers are still edible. My personal preferred method is usually fondant with CMC but in summer the fondant with CMC tends to stay a bit on the softer side.
A few progress pictures for you.
As you can see, i this red fella.
I made a big round ball than just shaped it a bit more. I cut out all these extra pieces of gum paste first then starting putting the pieces together.
For the eyes, I use a circle cutter but when placing them on; I did not keep the round but more oval shape so that would help give me that angry look.
- The Blue is more oblong. Same as above put the pieces together.
- The white is more a triangle shape with a round look.
- The yellow is much similar to the white.
- The black is simple and easy.
Instead of the green bird, I was asked to make the green pig.
Quite simple really so did not take any pictures.
For the basket I just rolled long thin sausages onto itself until I had a basket shape; then made the eggs.
