Gum paste Angry Birds
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 do sell sugar models/figures without the cake too sometimes.
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.
For these I used my gum paste recipe.
Here’s the red.
As you can see, 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 shape so that would help give me that angry look.
Next the Blue. This is more oblong.
Same as above put the pieces together.
The white is more a triangle shape with a round look.
This is the front view.
Side view. Note the beak of the white is different from the other two.
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.
Here are the five birds and one pig.
And that’s the gum paste angry birds from me.
