Angry Birds: You’ve Played the Game, Now Eat the Cake


Three very Angry Birds. Can you name them?

The wildly popular video game Angry Birds–invented by Finns, and said to have undergone over one billion downloads across the world universe in all formats–has gone analog!

Angry Birds are only a fraction of the elaborate cakes available at Chinatown’s Kamboat Bakery and Cafe.

Kamboat, a newish Hong-Kong-style bakery near the corner of Grand and Bowery, is selling Angry Bird cakes in three permutations. The fondant-heavy cakes are all in the round format, and it’s hard to tell which specific bird each represents. Is the red one on the right Deadpool, or is it the Flash?

In truth, all three cakes are mash-ups of several Angry Birds characters. Still, for the Angry Birds enthusiast, any of these would make a great birthday cake.
