I have a lovely owl cake decorating party to share with you today. This is a 2 hour party, celebrating Tamara’s 10th birthday.
Selecting the design
Tamara found my website and saw the Owl Cake Decorating Party we organised for June’s Birthday in Bentleigh. She thought the owl cakes were really cute.
I let Tamara select some of the colours we would use to decorate the owl cakes with. She selected dark pink owls on pink cakes. Tamara also wanted to add their names to the front of their cakes using blue fondant. On the top the girls made branches and leaves. They then added various flowers to their cakes.
There were 7 guests at Tamara’s party. After handing out the invitations, Tamara found that two of her guests were not able to eat cakes containing gluten.

I am excited to share with you this bright and colourful Birthday Cake. Designing it was so much fun! The Cake was for Maya’s 7th birthday in Melbourne. Maya decided she would like to have a “Rainbow Disco Party”. This cake for serves 15 people. Here are a couple of picture I took along the way.
Making the rainbow border
The border is simple made by rolling individual balls of fondant and placing them in position around the cake. If you are wondering how to make each one the same size. Roll each colour of fondant with a rolling pin to the same thickness. Then use the end of a piping tube to cut circle shapes. Roll up the circles and each ball will be the same size.
The flowers which are also made from fondant are attached to the cake using the tiniest amount of water. These flowers were then randomly positioned around the cake. The letters for Maya’s name are made using a cutter. Again the fondant is rolled out, then left to dry for a while. This makes it easier to remove the letters from the cutter.
Maya’s Dad came and picked up the cake after work. I received a phone call when he arrived home to say how happy they were with the cake and how I had brightened their day! It is always lovely to hear that a cake you have designed is a big hit!
