A Pink Owl Cake with Lollipops!

Monkeys and owls seem to be the “in” thing for cakes lately.  I’ve done three monkey cakes (herehere, and here) and today I finished up my third owl cake (here and here are the first two).  Update:  here’s a 4th owl cake.   I love almost all the cakes I do (I’ll keep to myself the ones I don’t like so much…hehe), but this one has to be one of the cutest cake ever!

This two tiered cake had lots of detail work, but it was so worth it!   I made the lollipops out of fondant and put them on cookie sticks.   I made some pink and some green and put them all the way around the cake.  They were “glued” on with royal icing (made from Meringue Powder).

The ribbons around the bottom were fondant also, I cut them with the FMM Multi Ribbon Cutter (my newest toy… I’m lovin’ it!!).

I cut the ribbons on the top tier with the Multi Ribbon Cutter too, and the polka dots were cut using the wrong end of a frosting tip.  The balls were hand-made, and I hand cut the background for Taya’s name.  Her name was cut with the Wilton Alphabet cutters.

And of course,  I must tell you about this sweet little owl on top.  She’s made of rice cereal treats covered in melted white chocolate, then in fondant.   I’m just in love with how cute she is!!

This cake was all chocolate cake covered and filled with vanilla buttercream.   Everything else is homemade marshmallow fondant!  Be sure to check out all my other cakes and cupcakes here!

    I am looking to make this owl with lollipops cake for my daughters birthday and was wondering whether you would be able to tell me what size cakes you have used and whether that would be enough for roughly 30 adults and 10 kids?

    Much appreciated,

      I used 6″ and 8″ pans and according to Wilton charts, that yields 32-36 servings. If you go up to a 9″ cake on the bottom, you’d get 36-44 servings. I hope that helps :)

        Thanks Rose,

        Have you just used 1 x 6″ and 1 x 8″ cakes or did you stack 2 cakes on top of each other for each layer? The cake looks very high from the photo.

        I have made the owl for the top of the cake and she looks very cute!! I can’t wait to see the cake all finished. My daughter is going to love it!!

    Hey Rose, I know the lollipops are made with fondant & you used the extruder to make them but I’m wondering did you extrude two ropes, twist them together & then wrapped it for the lollipop shape? I think that is how it’s done but also thought I would check with the expert. 😉 Thank you!

    • Rose says

      You’ve got it except I actually hand roll the ropes for these because I make the ropes a little larger than my extruder will make. Then just like you said, I twist two together, then wrap them around (putting a little sugar glue in there so it sticks)!!

    Hi Rose!
    Beautiful cake! Can you please tell me, or send me a link, of what rice treats you made your owl with? I’m new to cake decorating so don’t know all the tricks yet!
    Thanks Jo
