Christening cake with owls

Christening cake with owls
I have been waiting to show you my latest cake. A two tier cake, decorated with owls, hearts and flowers for a girls Christening party. The flavor combinations for the cakes were: Dark chocolate mud cake, raspberry mousse and chocolate ganache. Crumb coated with Italian Meringue Buttercream and covered with rolled fondant.

Cupcakes
For the younger guests of the party. I baked some vanilla cupcakes with a spread of royal icing, sprinkles and fondant flowers. All matching the color scheme of the Christening cake.
Cake with owls
I made the owls by using an egg shaped cookie cutter and used the pointy end of the egg cutter to cut off the top of the “egg/owl”. A small oval fondant cutter was used for the “belly”.
This methode could be easily be used, if you want to make fondant decorated sugar cookie owls for your next party.

Happy Caking!

    waw,i really love your cake,it s nice and so”clean”,i mean you got the professionnal touch i m trying so hard to achieve!!
    and the inside seems to be sooo good: great combo,miam!!!

    i wanted to thank you for your amazing post about IMBC,it’s thanks to you that i know how to make it now,but i need some more practice on how to use it.
    i use fondant on my cakes,and i would love to use mousse as a filling.i know that fondant and mousse is not easy to use together;

    as for you,i can use IMBC to frost my cake under fondant? did you have some troubles with mousse and IMBC? it seems like they re gonna get messy!!
    when you take your cake out of the fridge,the cake doesn t sink? because the mousse doesnt seem to be heavy enough to support the weight????
    does it make sense?
    i m sorry for my bad english,i speak french,and i m not sure to be clear !!
    thank you very much for sharing all of your knowledge in cake decorating,your posts are a big help!!!

      Mousse and IMBC works perfect together. I have never had problems covering a mousse filled cake, it is much worse if I use a regular buttercream. No the cake wont sink I pipe about 1-1/2 cm of filling in my cakes. As long as the mousse sets firm no problems at all.
