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!
