A friend of ours was turning the big 4-0. His parents had asked us to help arrange a surprise party for him. Everyone knows a birthday party is not complete without a cake! Since he is a big bird enthusiast, I thought a cake in the shape of an owl would be the perfect design. I sculpted a 5″ round cake in the shape of an owl, while the tree stump was a 6″ round cake. Both cakes were Classic Chocolate Cake with Strawberry Buttercream. All decorations are made of fondant.
Happy 40th Birthday Rich!
