Birthday Season

J Shirt for Jaide

We are in the midst of Birthday season, here in the Matching Pegs household, with 3 of our birthdays within 12 days.  Yesterday we celebrated Rory’s special day, with Michaela taking a couple of hours off, to help her friend Jaide celebrate her birthday.  Pictured above is the top I embellished for Jaide, with a simple needle turn applique.  Rory’s new mini-figures are checking it out.

Rory turned 9, and his cake was fantastic!

Plasticine Angry Birds

It was several days in the making – if you include the practice characters that the kids (and Luke) made with plasticine.

Angry Birds Cake

For those of you familiar with the game, it is easy to see that the cake featured “Angry Birds“, complete with evil green pigs (and boss pig with his moustache).

Making Angry Birds

The birds and pigs were made with solid icing, and it is safe to say that the experience of planning and making them was as important as the outcome – the look of the finished cake.

I was so impressed with the figures that the kids made, and the cake architecture that supported them, (constructed by Luke).  Oh and the cake was deee-lish!

Are you addicted to Angry Birds?

  1. Your birthday season is a month ahead of ours. I’m taking one heck of a deep breath before it all gets crazy. No Angry Bird cake requests yet though…shhhh….! (PS. Happy birthday everyone).

  2. My two girls are addicted to Angry Birds – they understand all the different levels and get annoyed with me when I don’t! They would both love love love this cake for their birthdays…..I’ve got til Oct & Nov to plan it. What did you make the birds out of? An icing paste like a hard royal icing?
