Happy 8th Birthday my little lady bird, my special girl, my one and only little cupcake.
Introducing Buckless....yes, that's the name Anya choose for her Owl
cake.....dont know why and what made her choose that name. This year
WE wanted something exciting and so WE choose an Owl cake.....I'm
guessing her recent promise ceremony at the Girl Guides had something
to do with the choice of the cake!
Initially I thought, how hard could it be??? but how wrong was I. Oh....the poor things head and the right wing gave me such a lot of trouble, and not to miss spending over 5hrs just cutting those 100's and 100's of heart shapes in 2 shades and sizes for feathers!!!! Ohhhhh. After all that, I too didn't want him to be cut up!
Cake: Triple chocolate mud with Belgian dark chocolate ganache and fondant finish. Leaves, twig, flowers, lady birds and bee all handmade from sugar paste. Made EXPLORE # 172 on 02/10/10....yeahhhhh :)
