Birthdays! Birthdays! Birthdays!


I have been asked by a few of you about birthdays at our house. Yes, there are twelve of us, so a lot of parties. Funny thing is, that there are seven “summer birthdays.” We have grown to call the May-July months the “Big Summer Birthday Bash!” Our bash started two weeks ago and we had two parties in that time frame. We also have a birthday next week, not to mention our relatives and friends. Whew! Sometimes I wonder how much cake I consume….never mind…let’s not go there. πŸ™‚


Okay, about this owl cake. I made it for my sister’s birthday. Cissy turned 14 last week and she is a total girl. She knows all about style, nail polish, fedoras, and all those really long necklaces withΒ the charmsΒ on the bottom. I wanted to make her a cute, stylish, girly cake and came across an image of an owl cake. Bingo! I thought it wasΒ the perfect cake, fitting all of my criteria’s. It helps too, that owls are the height of fashion right now.


Not much of a recipe to share guys, but I will walk you through the instructions!


1.) I used for the actual cake I used my DIY Yellow Cake Mix. Which, if I might add, worked really, really well! Find out how to make it here.

2.) Crumb coat the two layered 9″ cakesΒ and put it in the freezer to seal on the frosting and crumbs.

3.)Β  Coat the cake with a second layer. (I used pink!)

4.) Put on the Little Debbie’sΒ Oatmeal Cream Pies, with dabs of white frosting on each, for the eyes. Then add peppermint patties for the pupils.

5.) Make/buy rolled fondant and shape the beak, eyelashes, ears, and bow. If you google: “Marshmallow Fondant Recipe+blog” you will get excellent resources for fondant tutorials.

6.) Use M&M’s for the feet.

  6. Way cool cake Kloe! That lucky sis. We too have summer birthday bash in our family, scattered as we are. My niece is all of the things you described about your sister. Maybe she will get an owl too. You should turn her onto Bill Cunningham fashion photographer (my 13 year old fashionista niece loves him too).
