The Angry birds Phenomenon

Being a long and faithful Blackberry user; I began noticing angry birds paraphernalia at shopping malls, gift stores, gadgets, markets.. they were EVERYwhere! Round red and triangular yellow pillows at the back of cars...toys hanging off children school bags and stationary.. all over the place! What are these crazy looking birds?!.. i didn't realize for some time that they were from a Catapult game on Apple mobile products. All my Iphone buddies have been kept busy and addicted to this... and I have just jumped onto the bandwagon when dad got himself an Ipad. Now the entire family takes turns beating each others high scores everyday! Haha mom's pretty good... but I've got an unfair advantage with spending half my teenage years being hooked on games like worms and gunbound; mechanics are so similar. Makes me an instant angry birds MasTER~ *grin*



About a month ago; I was so lucky to meet Jackie and Miyuki who requested for a unique wedding cake concept. They wanted something fun, different ... and ANGRY birDS! YAY!!! I was thrilled!

Being very careful not to go overboard with the decorating and the colours; I conceptualized something that still resembled a cake for a wedding. Their friends had sketched them 2 little cartoon characters which was used in the wedding invitations and decor. I made the cute image of them both as a couple into a 3D topper they could keep.
The cake was so much fun to make; and at delivery; her friends and family all looked at the cake and went... OoOooo angry birds.. that's SOOo miyuki! haha I wonder if they played with the catapult and the birds after the wedding dinner. hehe I would have... though it was all made of all sugar; it would probably have been a fun and yummy angry birds real life war!
