Angry Birds birthday cake takes baked goods to a new level
It's Angry Birds, complete with the little green pigs and collapsible blocks, but this game isn't found on a smart phone or a tablet.
It's a cake. A playable Angry Birds birthday cake (as seen in the video above).
Using a slingshot, players can hurl icing-covered not-so-happy birds toward pillars and planks stuck in frosting, replicating the play of the smart phone and tablet game itself.
The Angry Birds cake was baked/built by Mike Cooper, one of the writers at the tech blog Electricpig.co.uk, for his son Ben's sixth birthday.
Cooper also wrote a step-by-step tutorial on how to make the dessert.
The game company behind Angry Birds, Rovio, tweeted about the project, saying, "Very cool! Might be the first playable Angry Birds cake ever."
Cooper wrote in a blog post that baking outlandish cakes for his children has become a family tradition, and his son is a huge Angry Birds fan, hence the project.
"With my little boy Ben turning 6 years old over the weekend and appreciating his love of Angry Birds, I thought I'd have a shot at making him a playable Angry Birds birthday cake with working catapult and iced birds as ammunition," he wrote. "It took 10 hours to make and 2 minutes to destroy."
