Paul Brewer

Our Yumologists couldn't believe it when three of their own decided to combine the creative world of arts & crafts with dessert and the ever popular Angry Birds ap!

Erin Thornton, Lisa Brewer and Paul Brewer, our NYC based Yumologists, spent countless hours in the kitchen Saturday concocting the recipes for these sugary replicas. Red birds, yellow birds, blue birds and pigs were all represented as Paul, Lisa and Erin tirelessly strived to build this confectionary cavalry.

When asked why the black birds were not included in this project, Paul confessed, "There's not enough black food coloring in the world to do them justice and we are aiming for perfection."

Want to attempt to build your own Angry Bird army you can launch now and munch later? Here's how:

1 butter cake packet mix (+ ingredients required per the pack)
18 ounces of cream cheese
1/4 cup of milk
1 bag white chocolate melts
1 box fondant
Food coloring
1 tube black decorating icing gel

1. Mix and bake the cake mix according to the instructions on the packet.  Let the cake cool entirely.

2. Cut the cake into cubes and put it through the food processor until it resembles fine breadcrumbs.  Tip the cake crumbs into a bowl.

3. Add the cream cheese to the bowl of the food processor and add the milk. Process until the cream cheese and milk are smooth and light.

4. Fold the cream cheese mix through the cake crumbs until they are thoroughly incorporated.  Use your hands to form the shapes of the figures you want to make and put them in the freezer to freeze.

5. Melt the chocolate melts over a double boiler or in the microwave.  Roll each of the moulded figures in the white chocolate to coat and let them dry and harden on a sheet of baking paper.  This will ensure the figures don’t leach liquid into the icing coating after they have been decorated.

6. Kneed the food coloring into the fondant until it reaches the color desired.

7. Using rolling pin, flatten fondant and begin decorating Angry Birds.

8. Destroy Pigs and eat.

Say Whaa?! Whaa kind of cakeballs can you come up with?
