Monkeys and owls seem to be the "in" thing for cakes lately. I've done three monkey cakes (here, here, 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!!
Did I miss anything? If you have questions about how to make this cake, please leave them in the comments!!
