First Birthday Owl Cake (2420)
Incorporating owls into a birthday is a cute theme for a child’s birthday. (I just love all the ways Kelly incorporated the owl theme into her daughter’s first birthday) We’ve done a variety of owl theme cakes in the past and this weekend we had pleasure of creating another unique owl themed birthday cake for a repeat customer’s nephew.
Lisa emailed us a photo of the specific owl and colors to use as inspiration for this cake. The owl is sitting at the top of the tier holding an orange “1″ and wearing a triangular birthday party hat. The top tier is covered in turquoise fondant with orange polka dots of various sizes.
The next tier is decorated in brown fondant with a lime green banner reading “Happy 1st Birthday Grady!”. White fondant with varying width stripes in orange, lime green, turquoise, charcoal and brown wrap around the final tier. Rolled fondant balls decorate the base of each tier.
Flavors and fillings included banana cake with strawberry buttercream and vanilla with vanilla buttercream. We delivered the cake to Manhattan this afternoon – we hope the family enjoyed it!
Happy Birthday Grady!
