"whoops A Daisy" Owl Baby Shower Cake
Modeled after the "Whoops a Daisy" line at Target, this owl baby shower cake is chocolate fudge with raspberry filling, buttercream frosting, and marshmallow fondant decorations. I think it turned out pretty cute!
Directions for this CUTE owl cake can be found here: http://inspirecreatebake.blogspot.com/2011/03/whoo-whoo-owl-cake.html I made this for a friend of my son's who requested it. I used 6 inch cakes, filled 3/4 full with batter so they would "dome." Then I froze them before carving, to make that easier. It's also easier to frost a carved cake when it's frozen, fewer messy crumbs. Its vanilla funfetti cake with buttercream frosting inside and marshmallow fondant outside. Feet weren't in the original, but if you have to have orange fondant for a beak, might as well throw on some feet! ; ) I loved how she turned out!

Would have liked to have more time to make this look better, oh well!
Chelsea's Zoo Birthday Cake
Made this zoo cake after having the theme changed on me overnight!

It's vanilla cake, raspberry filling, buttercream frosting and marshmallow fondant decorations.
Two Cakes In One! Cousins College Birthday Cake
TWO cakes in one! This cake was for a family party honoring 2 18 yr olds, heading off to different colleges. So I decided to decorate half the cake for each of them! Chocolate fudge cake with chocolate mousse filling and buttercream frosting. The curly ribbons are marshmallow fondant. Note: CWI (College of Western Idaho) doesn't really have a mascot, lol. The unicorn is Lind of a joke, apparently its known as the "fake" mascot because the logo looks like a unicorn horn, ha ha. I didn't want it to look too feminine, so I loosely modeled it after the BSU Bronco. : )

Found it: the cake picture she showed me is here: http://cakecentral.com/gallery/1971943 by mapetite. But I think mapetite must have seen the cakes by Fantasticakes on here, because the resemblance is pretty strong, so thanks to both of you!
