Owl Birthday Cake

Owl themed birthday parties are super popular right now,
and I got to create this cake for a 1st birthday party!

We focused on the pink and brown from the party plates
for the design of this cake.

It's a 5"/8"/12" cake frosted in buttercream with fondant
and gumpaste decorations. The smash cake is a 5" cake and
a 6" half ball cake that was slightly carved to help create the
owl shape. It's frosted in buttecream with a few candy pieces
for decorations.

Happy 1st Birthday Kailey!


  1. It's adorable! I am sure it tastes as great as it looks!

  2. first I want to say thank you for posting this blog for us.. its very helpful .. thank you also for explaining the cake sizes .. its very helpful. Do you use a special spatula or scraper for the sides to get it that smooth? if so, what scraper do you use. ?

  3. You're welcome! I use a small icing spatula to put the icing on, and then a bench scraper to smooth everything out. Hope this helps!

  4. Love this cake! I was wondering if you have a template for the owl. Also, how did you add texture to the ribbon?
