Owl Cake

owl cake
by Joanne Clifton (Kerrville Texas)
This is a 12 in round. It was based on the invitation. Started a piece of parchment to mark off what I wanted to do, with one small bowl for the eyes and took another that was slightly larger and marked the darker area around the eyes.

There was the pupil area which was about the size of a shot glass. Once I had the eyes figured, I had the triangular area between that was to be the beak. Marked in the eyelashes. Below the eyes was the breast area that reminded me of a smaller heart pan, so I used it for a pattern for that area, and to mark off the wings.

I drew in the horned ears, the tuft on top, the feet, and the bow on the one ear and had my pattern off the invitation of what she wanted, and proceeded to bake the cake.

The 12 inch took two pound cake recipes for lemon cakes. After it cooled. I iced the top white and smoothed it with a paper towel, iced the sides in teal, then marked off the areas on the top with the bowls that I used on the pattern piece.

After imprinting the eyes, I used the black to make the pupil, leaving the small white area, made the eye lashes, used the darker teal with a leaf tip for feathers where the invitation had the darker area around the outer eyes and a lighter teal around the rest of the body in the same tip.

The wings were done in tan. The chest area outlined in the darker teal with hearts an flowers in the center of white. Prior to doing the cake, I had used the pattern pieces of the feet, ears, bow and tuft to make fondant with tylose to dry around sticks to insert into the cake at the party.
