Owls in Love…

Owls seem to be popping up all over the place these days.  Every time I turn around, I see one of these big eyed cuties staring back at me— lunch boxes, bed spreads, pillows, and now–cakes!

I decided to make a quick tutorial on owl decorations and cupcakes–after all, just a little tweak here and there will give you the perfect dessert or cake topper for a boy or girl’s birthday, baby shower, couple’s shower, or even a look WHOOO’s turning 40 party!  Easy, simple, and did I mention it’s a love story too?

I love a happy ending!  Sniff sniff.  :0) — I also want to welcome  the newest members to our cake family!  Welcome EdiblePrints, pasquelt, shiritdori, Adenevan, bunmi-afere12, Cathy, & nicoleshifrin!! Welcome!!!

Check back in soon, and happy caking!!!

    I want to try these out for my son’s birthday, so cute! Can you tell me what flower tool you used to make the “feather” impressions on the blue and pink fondant owls?

    Hi Amanda– for the owl bodies–it’s been so long that I was going to say that I used my small Wilton daisy cutter, because I use it so often. Then I saw the photo where I’m holding a little leaf/strawberry top cutter from a set I bought a while back–

    Since you likely don’t have this, don’t worry about it—daisy cutters or any flower cutter would be fine–just make a slight impression. And then for the wings, I just used the little curve of my tip 81.
