Angry Birds FTW! This might be one of our favorite hotel pastry concoctions ever.

The pastry chef at the Rosewood Sand Hill in Menlo Park, Calif. created a special Easter display in honor of Angry Birds, the addictive iPad and iPhone time-waster app and video game. Considering that this hotel is in the shadow of Palo Alto and Silicon Valley, the Angry Birds were very apropro.

The birds were put out for the hotel restaurant's, Madera, Easter brunch where ducks, chickens, dwarf goats, turkeys, sheeps rabbits and yes, pot-bellied pigs frolicked on the lawn out front. Although the display is made of edible ingredients, guests were not allowed to get the Golden Egg, er, we mean, eat it.
