My wee one wanted an owl cake for his 3rd birthday. I had been collecting pictures of octopus cakes as I was sure he was going to ask for an octopus cake. Oh well.
I copied the design from the book - Cake Decorating Motifs by Sheila Lampkin. She gives step by step instructions for more than 150 designs for using fondant icing. I have used this book a lot since getting it and it has never failed me. Love it.
I also made some cupcakes which I copied from Hello Cupcake! I simplified mine to save a little time.
And, of course, I made owl cake pops from Bakerella's book. I am very proud of these. They were very time consuming, though, so I made most of them without the wings.
I must also mention the gorgeous bunting which you can see in the top photo - this is from Especially For and I got really cute personalised printed owl party bags from Funky Dory Party Bags.
