Look Whoo's Turning 1 (Owl Themed Cake)

Oh my gosh! Talk about the cutest birthday theme EVER! I was just so excited to make this owl themed cake for one of my best friends', sweet little daughter, Caroline! I mean, I probably was a little too excited since I did go a little overboard with the dessert station, but how could I not? This is just too adorable to resist! I made this two tiered cake in chocolate for the top tier and classic white for the bottom tier with buttercream icing. I made the owl by hand with fondant and cutout the remaining decorations out of fondant. The tiered "smash" cake is white cake with buttercream icing and fondant decorations on top. The cupcakes are also in chocolate and white cake with pink fondant flowers on top. Of course, I had to get fresh rose petals to add to the table for the finishing touch. She did turn 1 and all ;-)


  1. The most beautiful cake (and cupcakes) I could have asked for! You are so talented and I'm so lucky that you did this for us. Love you!

  2. Thanks!!! Totally worth it for little C! Can't wait for the next Barton cake adventure!
