A Playable Angry Birds Birthday Cake for One Lucky Kid

The simple mobile game Angry Birds has spawned an entire genre of real-life projects: People recreate the game in felt (like my sister) or as stop-motion animation or use it as a metaphor for the Middle East peace process. But this father-son project is the best (i.e. cutest) implementation I've seen: It's a playable birthday cake created with obvious love by tech journalist Mike Cooper for his son.

And if you want to try your hand at this, Cooper has now posted a step-by-step guide to building your own Angry Birds cake.
