Cheese birds must be the happiest birds around. Just as long as they stay out of hot climates.
Swans are so graceful and elegant and pretty (from a distance, let's not talk about the up-close and personal). Pastry cream is possibly one of the most delicious inventions on the planet; you could top a pizza with it and I'd dive right in. I'd like to see these floating on a little stream of champagne and it would be a perfect tableau.
I like pastries and cakes that are modeled off stationary or wallpaper or fabric patterns. I'm not saying these birds are derived from another source but wouldn't an apron with these little guys on it just be the sweetest thing ever?
