I made this cake for my Gradma Bird's 88th birthday and literally constructed the Bird family tree. In addition to having the last name "Bird," she's an avid bird watcher, so I included a bird feeder, bird bath and birds feeding along the ground. The cake is covered in MMF. The tree was molded from cake crumbs mixed with buttercream then iced over in royal icing. Birds and nests are MMF. Bird bath is royal icing (with a royal icing covered pretzel stick base) filled with colored piping gel for water.
