Hello, it’s Ro! And today on Nerdy Nummies, we are gonna be making Angry Bird Cupcakes. I got so many requests for these, so I’m
really excited! OK, let’s get started! I already pre-baked my cupcakes. You can use
any recipe that you like. I used a vanilla box cake, because I like
to keep it simple. First thing that we’re gonna do is frost. I’m frosting the cupcakes each of the different
colors of the birds. We have, the red bird, the yellow bird, the
piggie, the black bird and the blue bird. I’m going to start with yellow. Yellow is
the only one that I couldn’t find that was already pre-dyed, so I just added a little
food coloring. So if you can’t find one of these colors, just dye ‘em! And it’s ok if it gets a little messy, because
we are going to dip them in sprinkles! What I like to do when I use these bottles,
is you just put a little bit of pressure, and get out the frosting. Meerwwwhhh-wheeewwwww! And then, smoothing it out. When you’re
doing individual cupcakes, I’ve just found that this way is just really, really easy. After you’re done frosting, we’ve got
our green ones, these are the piggies, and we’re gonna take a big marshmallow and
cut it in half, and put it on top for his nose and then we’ll frost it green. Once you’re done frosting we’re gonna
dip all of the cupcakes into the different candy sugars. And if you don’t have candy
sugars you can just stop here, because these are the colors of the birds. So, it’s
ok! I’m just being super fancy today! So we’re gonna start with, these are little
sugar candy balls, you’ve got your candies and you just dip ‘em, just like this. Boom! Delicious! Next candy is blue, these are a little bit
like, bigger sugar crystals, I found them at a cake store. Oooh, look at that! That
one’s pretty! Mmmm-mmmm! Now I’m gonna dip it in red, this is a really
easy to find color, I found this at every grocery store that I went to. Now black! Pff-pff-pff-pff-pff! When you’re making the little piggie you
just want to be really, really careful because you don’t want his nose to fall off! So,
I’m just really, really gentle when I’m dipping it. I’m at no point, just putting
all the weight onto the nose. You can even put him down, kinda sprinkle
a little on top. I MAKE IT RAIN! I MAKE IT RAIN! I MAKE IT
RAIN! Then shake the excess off. Piggie makes it
rain, piggie makes it rain. I’m all done with the sprinkles, and now
I’m gonna make all their little faces. The things that you will need, will be: Yellow
Starbursts, Confetti, I bought a variety pack, but it’s these, um, circle
confetti’s because we’re gonna use the blue circles. Jelly beans, we’re gonna
need red, black, this light blue color, and green jelly beans. Small marshmallows,
big jumbo marshmallows, orange Airheads, which I found at the grocery
store. Double shot of mini chocolate chips, these come in big packs at the baking section.
And, rope hard licorice, this was a little harder for me to find, but I found
it I think at Trader Joes. I’m gonna make the white part of their belly
first. and just like the Pig’s nose, you’re gonna cut this marshmallow, but this
time you’re making it a lot thinner. Not in half, what is this? Like, one fifth
of the mushroom? Wait… Marshmallow? Just watch what I’m doing, don’t listen
to what I’m saying! But not the blue bird, he doesn’t get one
of these! Because he’s just not as cool! Now we’re gonna paint the black bird’s
tummy gray. And I got this silver color, it’s fondant paint, I used it on the Game
of Thrones Chest piece cake. And you just dip your paintbrush and paint
right on top of the marshmallow. Oh it looks so cool! I’m really loving working with other candies
that aren’t just fondant. Deee-neee! They’re so cute! Now we’re gonna make the beaks, with these
orange Airheads. I’ve unwrapped a few, so this is kind of what they look like. And you’re
gonna take your baking scissors, and cut little triangles. Laffy Taffy and Airheads,
they cut so easy, so they’re really easy to mold. And then just take their little
beak, and stick it on. Ta-da! And you’ll just do that for all of the birds. Now we’re gonna do the eyes, and you’re
gonna take your little marshmallows and cut them in half with your baking scissors. Reeewwwwp! And I’m gonna put these on… The blue bird
first, just gonna stick them right here. And then for his eyeballs, you’re gonna
take one of the mini chocolate chips. Stick ‘em right on top, and you can use
a little frosting to make them stick if they keep falling off. My chocolate chips are kinda
warm, so they stick right on there. And with the eyeballs, you can have fun with
it, you can make them be lookin wherever you want them to look. Like here,
or here-ere-ere haha! And you’re gonna do this for all of the
birds and for the piggies. OK, once you get all of the eyeballs on, ta-da!
Don’t forget to put two little chocolate chips for the pig’s nose. And
now we’re going to make, Angry Bird eyebrows! These are the most important part, they make
them look angry! So we’re gonna cut open the bag, unroll,
and we’re gonna cut eyebrows. And you can just kind of eyeball them,
see how long you want them to be. He’s really mad because he just lost an
eyeball! And now you’re gonna put the eyebrows on
for all of the birds, but not the pigs, no pigs! Now we’re gonna add their feathers. These
are the little feathers that go on the top of their head. And, the yellow bird has black
feathers, so I’m gonna take black jelly beans, I’m gonna put 2 of them right on top of
his head and hopefully they’ll stick. If not, I might have to put some more frosting. So we put 2 black jelly beans right here,
just like that. And then for blue bird, he has blue feathers,
so he’ll get 2 blue jelly beans. The red bird has red feathers, so we’ll
take 2 red jelly beans for him. And then for the black bomb bird, he has,
like, just 1, so you’re just gonna put 1 black jelly bean. And then for the pigs you’re gonna use 2
green jelly beans. And for the first one I’m putting 2 of the
ears to the side because I’m gonna make a crown out of Starbursts. And these will just be
normal. Now, for the final step I’m going to be
making a little crown. I’ve got a Starburst, and I’m gonna roll it out. We’re gonna
roll it out just to be a little bit thinner. There we go, then you’re gonna take your
baking scissors and cut a crown shape out. In the game it’s kind of like a tall crown,
so I’m gonna make it really tall! For my little piggy! And then, you’re gonna take the confetti
sprinkles, I got it in this multi-pack at the store, and you’re gonna find 3 blue,These
are so small, blue sprinkles. You might have to use tweezers to pick these
up if you don’t have small hands. Then you’re just gonna stick those, right
on the Starbursts. The Starbursts are sticky, so you don’t need to put any frosting or
anything. And now, I’m gonna crown my little pig!
Perfect! And, I also put an extra piece of licorice
and a red jelly bean so it looks like my other pig is sticking out his tongue. Ta-da! Angry Bird cupcakes! They’re so cute! This is my favorite one,
I like the one with the uh, the pig with the crown! Thanks you guys for watching, if you have
any other ideas for any other Nerdy Nummies, please let me know! Leave me a comment and
I will do my best to make it happen! OK, bye-bye!
