Hey guys! I haven't posted in a very long time but I was too excited not to share this. Only my fellow cakers would understand why this is so exciting!
Last week I posted this Angry Birds cake that I had made for my 8yo son's birthday:
I got the least amount of views, comments, and favorites of any cake I have ever posted, and I thought this was my best work yet. Anyway, no big deal. But this week the makers of the Angry Birds iphone game tweeted a picture of the cake to their followers, and it has exploded from there. It has shown up on all kinds of iphone blogs, popular tech sites, etc. I google "Angry Birds birthday cake" and the whole front page is full of links to my cake!
I'm just a home baker who does this as a hobby for fun so stuff like this doesn't just happen to me every day. I just wanted to share with people who could appreciate my little 15 minutes of internet fame! Thanks for reading!
Cool!!! Way to GO! You do great work. That is a hugh compliment to be on the internet.
^fist bump with fireworks^........awesome cake!!!
How exciting! I looked at your cake and it looks really well done. I've never heard of Angry Birds, but I can see why those who are fans would love this cake!
Yay for you!!
I have no idea who angry birds are - but congrats to you for getting recognized for what I think is a very clean, smooth, well-done cake!!
What a cute cake!
ohhhhh awesome cake
I love that game- im addicted to it actually.
Your cake is incredibly perfect- you got every detail in there, even the smug look on those darned pigs
Great job, it was done perfect.
I have never heard of the angry bird game either, but your cake looks perfect. I'ts very clean and well done. How cool that it was recognized like that. Congrats to you!!!
I agree, it is perfectly done! Congrats on it being everywhere now! Now I'm off to play some Angry Birds.
CONGRAT'S!!! Enjoy it, your cake is perfect.
Yep, googled it and it's EVERYWHERE!!!! Congrats!
I called my son to have a look and he said "OH, AWESOME!"
Congratulations!!! That is definitely exciting! I know nothing of "Angry Birds" but the cake is phenomenal. Your son had to be thrilled with his fabulous custom cake made by his very own mom!
AWESOMENESS!!!! Congrats I know I would be excited too and you deserve it that cake looked pretty flawless to me!
Yes, you did a wonderful job you should be proud. Love it
Never heard of them either, but a great cake.
So happy for you - enjoy the fame!
Wonderful! My husband is addicted to that game...we both are sending you BIG KUDOS!!!
I saw it earlier in the week in the CC galleries, then again on a totally different website. I can't even remember where and what I saw it on but I said "hey I've seen that cake".
Congrats on your fame!!!
Your cake is amazing!!!!
I think sometimes when people do not understand a cake (on CC), they don't save it...I've had a few cakes I felt were very good, but since it didn't really strike a chord with people who did not understand the theme behind it...it didn't get viewed or saved too much.
Just wanted to share this with you guys, the latest in my saga, my cake and I made the New York Times today! No picture, unfortunately, but they did link to one I posted last month.
I love angry birds! Great cake!
How fun!!!! Great job! Congrats!
