How to make Angry Birds Characters from Fondant or Playdough

I was very lucky to have the lovely and talented Carly from Sublime Cakes and Sweets make this simply AMAZING cake for my son’s 6th Birthday party (he adores Angry Birds…who doesn’t).

We were even LUCKIER when she agreed to show YOU all how to make your very own Angry Bird Character from Cake Fondant or Playdough! I bet your child would be impressed if you whipped one of these up for them! It’s actually surprisingly easy too! Here we go!

You will need:

Angry Birds Character Tutorial ingredients

Red, white, black & yellow fondant or playdough

Black edible marker

Small circle cutter

Tylose (if using fondant)

Rolling pin

Small paint brush

Step 1

Knead a small amount of tylose into your fondant (if not using playdough) – this will help harden your fondant. Roll it into a ball

Step 2

Roll out your white fondant/playdough and cut out a circle using your cutter. Using a brush, paint a small amount of water on one side

Step 3

Glue your circle onto the bottom of the red ball of fondant/playdough

Step 4

Roll two small sausages of red fondant and glue on top using water for the crest and make two indents for eye sockets

Step 5

Roll two small white balls and ‘glue’ into eye sockets to create the eyes

Step 6

Roll a sausage of black fondant/playdough for the eyebrows

Step 7

‘Glue’ this over the eyes, then using a toothpick press down in the middle to create a ‘v’ shape

Step 9

Glue the yellow bottom of the beak on first, followed by the white (centre) part

Step 10

Step 11

Use your black edible marker to draw the black centre of the eyes and also the outline around the eyes and TA-DAR! You are done!
