This was for a young lady turning 13. The smash cake was for her sister, turning 1. They were having a dual party. The cupcakes were for the guests. I received an email from the mom saying that her daughter did not want to cut the owl cake and she named it "Penny". I hope they actually did end up cutting it, but I was flattered that she liked it so much. I used Debbie Brown's instructions from her "50 Simple Party Cakes" book. I added a tail, changed the colors and removed the glasses and mortar board cap.
