Little Owl Cake by CakeUpStudio Little Owl Cake by CakeUpStudio
my entry for #CRArtisanCrafts's challenge - link to journal

I love making 'selfie' cakes! not only I can experiment with new recipes but also try the most crazy ideas!
this one I is made of free-hand sculpted caramel mudcake layered with salty caramel frosting and covered with chocolate ganache and then fondant/modeling chocolate mix. I made it as two separate cakes (birch trunk and owl) and then stacked them together. I'm proud to inform that it's 100% edible - there is absolutely no internal structure, not even rice crisps. but in some places (like tail) the fondant had to be pretty thick. it was also painted with food dyes.
still the most difficult part was choosing my favourite type of owl!

thank you xthumbtakxand Brookette for a DD!
you made Little Owl very happy!

This looks and sounds amazing. I would definitely buy one if it were ever possible to in the future for my birthday. My Native American animal is the owl, and I'm addicted to salted caramel food. =P (Razz)

Lovely work! I thought it was a sculpture or a sewn animal at first (when I didn't see the picture of it cut in half. ^^')
