Fondant fun pink owl cake:

A teardrop-shaped cookie cutter was used to create the illusion of layered owl feathers on this pink owl birthday cake. The eyes, beak and eyebrows are also all created from colored fondant. The striped cake board was made by tracing a piece of thick craft paper, cutting it out and adhering to a pre-purchased cake board, which is a great way to jazz up a plain cake board!

Blue ombré ruffle cake with owl topper:

This cake is a feminine, fun combination of Maggie Austin’s ruffle technique, taught in her class Fondant Frills, and a sweet cartoon-like blue owl fondant cake topper. The mini two-tone fondant rosettes add another element of whimsy and femininity, too.

Cute, sassy and cartoony, this pink 3-D owl cake has some clever details, such as scallop cookie-cutter shaped eyes, a darling striped bow, feminine eyelashes and an extra mini bird on top. Especially impressive is that this was Karlagourmet’s first sculpted cake!

Blue and orange make the perfect color combo for a little boy’s 2nd birthday party — owlie themed! Owl shaped cookie cutters were used to make the owl cupcake toppers and the cutting cake was covered in an electric blue fondant and decorated in a nighttime scene.

Beautiful snowy owl winter wedding cake:

British cake designer Krisanthi created this incredible snowy owl winter wedding cake, complete with wintry sugar blooms and an overall woodsy feel. I like the cake styling on the wooden cake pedestal, too. My favorite subtle detail might be the crystal shimmery dew drops that dot the border of the second tier. A true owly work of art.
