Girly Owl Birthday Cake

I just finished this one a few minutes ago. Very rarely do I get to work on cakes in the middle of the day, but my mom (today's hero) took Bailey for a play date while little Livie napped. I had a whole 2 1/2 hours of quiet bliss!!! Actually, I take that back...it wasn't quiet at all! ;)
.
Typically, I'm working on cakes in the EARLY EARLY morning hours before everyone is awake, or at night while everyone is sleeping. I'm required to be very very quiet during my cake time. Boooooorrrrring!!!
.
So today I broke out my favorite mixed song CD and danced around the kitchen, spatula in hand covered head to toe in sugar!! (quite a sight to see I'm sure!) Unfortunately I took too many breaks to "busta move" and this cake ended up taking me a little longer than I expected, but hey...it was fun, so it was worth it! :) :)
.
And here it is...a girly owl cake made to match the owl themed partyware.
This is what it looks like from a child's view...always looking up.
And if you're really really tall this is what it looks like.... ;)
