I wanted the owl to look as though it was sitting in a nest on top of a tree. The nest was designed to be Callie's smash cake (but we decided on a cupcake at the party...more on that later).
The top tier of the cake was a yellow cake with buttercream and strawberry preserve filling. The bottom tier of the cake was a chocolate cake with chocolate fudge, buttercream and Oreo filling. (Best.Flavor.Combination.Ever! Totally MY favorite!)
Stacy also requested soy, dairy and gluten-free cupcakes for the party due to some dietary restrictions. She provided the cupcake mix and I baked them and decorated them with 7-minute frosting; a very marshmallow-y, light and sweet topping!
We're getting ready to sing Happy Birthday to Callie. Here's her smash cake.
Dear Callie - I hope you had a wonderful birthday celebration! I'm so thankful I got to be a part of your special day! I look forward to celebrating many more with you!
