Angry Beaks & Birds

Angry birds, angry birds, angry birds. Those vindictive little fouls that over a few stolen eggs are willing to sacrifice the entire species, lol. What can I say, I love them. They are the perfect end to a day, flinging those little buggers through the air and smashing those pigs to high heaven. Even better when you are munching on a Chicken Club sandwich at the same time. LOL But hey, sometimes you need something sweet to go with your victory and that is when these babies come in.

Had posted a few pictures of these last month for my sons birthday party but I felt they deserved just as much attention as the cake got. Honestly, I don't think I have had a better turn out for themed cookies yet than these babies.

Now these are surprisingly easy to make and here are a few pictures to give you an idea of how to. To start, simple print out some of your favorite images of said Angry Birds on card stock paper, cut them out and then use those as cookie stencils.

After that, all you really need to do it create an outline like you would when making a coloring sheet for the kids. Just some black royal icing and have fun. It doesn't have to be perfect! Who cares if it isn't, it will taste just as nifty. (Always remember to let any black outline dry at least overnight before adding any more colors or your risk your icing colors bleeding together.)

After the base color dries, just full in the colors as you need, add more detail. I recommend letting colors dry at least 2-3 hours between unless you are doing a flooding blend. It helps things set a bit as well as helping keeping colors from bleeding. (Reds I recommend overnight just as with black.)

Now, if you aren't into doing this level of detail or you are just starting and want something a tad more for beginners and just as jaw dropping cool, try beak cookie pops. As with before, print out beaks on card stock, cut out and use as a cookie stencil. After that, just add a cookie pop stick before baking.

Outline and let dry overnight.

Fill, dry and enjoy!

Aren't they just so angry they're cute?!? Anything on a stick my kids can play with is always a hit in our house. These went over just as well as the mustache cookie pops.
