Beautiful Owl Cake








Oh, How much I wish I would have been at this party. This cake is calling my name!

Priya of Sugar Pot made this gorgeous cake for her daughter Anya's 8th birthday party. When I looked at the photos I didn't realize how much time consuming it must have been to make all those heart shaped feathers on the owl, until I read Priya's comment "the right wing gave me such a lot of trouble, and not to miss spending over 5hrs just cutting those 100's". All the hard work well worth it. The end result is gorgeous! This triple chocolate mud cake with Belgian dark chocolate ganache is making my mouth water. I love the detail of beautiful handmade leaves, twig, flowers, lady birds and bee around the cake.

The birthday girl looks happy receiving such awesome cake made by her mom. I am sure this also made the day very special for all the guests present at the party.

oh, the cake looks so fantastic! Must be a very special young lady, if her mom loads herself with so much work for this party :) but - how could one possibly eat that cute thing? cutting just one piece out of it would make me cry, I´m afraid... should be have been preserved somehow ;) at least we have these great pictures.

Hi Amy, What a fantastic blog you have. I have so enjoyed scrolling through past posts. To answer your question about flesh colored felt. I use National/Non Woven Wool Felt which I purchase from a company called Joggles. The color is called Buttercream. There is a post about the felt I use on my sidebar. Kits are going to be made by a company and will contain the color felts I have used in my projects. Thank you so much about asking! Elizabeth

That's quite a feat! It must have taken a week to make, but so worth it. What a beautiful birthday soiree.
