Owl Cake

OK.  I cannot wait to share this any longer-it is too adorable!!  Shauna MADE this AWESOME cake for her niece's birthday.  It was a "Night Owl" party. The girls watched Tangled, played some really cute games, had pizza and cake, and I painted their toenails.

Inspiration came from this adorable cake at SnowyBliss:

Shauna made the fondant using a marshmallow fondant recipe.  She says using that fondant is awesome.  I helped a teeny tiny bit, and it did seem to work really well.  (i don't have much experience with fondant to compare it to, so take her word not mine)  :)

The bottom two cakes are real, and the owl is a styrofoam ball.  "Hoo-Hoo" would have guessed that?  I guess it would be sort of difficult to make a spherical cake.

The birthday girl LOVED it, of course.  "Hoot" wouldn't?   hahaha  OK, enough corny owl humor already.

Bottom line:  When it comes to cakes, Shauna's good.  Real good.  Here is your proof.  :)


  1. GORGEOUS cake!! LOVE it! I always use Marshmallow fondant on mine too. It turned out super cute. We just had a caterpillar part at our house. You can pop over if you are curious about her caterpillar cake =-)
    I would love for you to link up at my TGIF Linky Party -

  2. Beautiful cake! I'm planning an owl theme for my daughter's 6th birthday. Unfortunately she doesn't like fondant so I'll be working with butter cream.
