This cake (chocolate with vanilla buttercream) was made for a boy's first birthday...the party was woodland themed, with a guided nature center tour and animals, including a live owl! The cake topper is an owl, 100% edible, carved from cereal treats and covered in gumpaste, designed to match the party invitation and decor. The main cake is covered in fondant with fondant and gumpaste accents. This picture below includes the "smash cake", covered in buttercream icing with fondant leaves, to complement the main cake and perfect for the birthday boy to dig into and enjoy!
Here is a close-up of the owl, along with the invitation in the background. The coffee mug is there for scale.
