I was given free reign on designing a cake for a friend's baby shower. While brainstorming ideas, I thought an owl might be fun... I think I was right! I love how this little guy turned out!
I used an Old Fashioned Chocolate Frosting recipe from Our Best Bites to cover the cake (the cake was from them too... you just can't go wrong there!). I thought about doing fondant for the decoration, but procrastinated long enough to make buttercream the choice for me. I really like it better anyway, though. And it turned out so perfect! I mean, aside from the smudges of chocolate surrounding the bottom, of course.
My first linky!
