Owl family Christmas cake ( no. 2)
I first made this cake last year for my lovely sister and her family . Then this Xmas I had an order for one – the irks are a little fluffier and the board is a little bigger – I used edible glitter on the board this time as well.
I started by airbrushing the cake a little with a pale blue . Then I started on the tree by rolling the trunk and branches and then marking the bark with a cocktail stick or scriber tool. Then I painted in the darker colour of the tree to give it some definition . Snow is added when the owls have been made .
All hand modelled in fondant. ( see my Facebook page for a mini pictorial on how I make my owls)
Finished with snow drops painted on and a touch of white and white glitter to the branches .
Thanks for looking xxxx
