WARNING - CUTE ALERT!!!
Lisa contacted me a little while ago to make her son Maico's 1st birthday cake and cupcakes. This cake is planned for next weekend for his birthday bash!
Lisa then decided that you are only 1 once, so she wanted a special little cake for his actual birthday - TODAY!
So this is actual birthday cake, Hoot the Owl!
I have to admit that I had never heard of Giggle & Hoot, we are a Foxtel house, so I needed to YouTube it to get some inspiration and I fell a little in love with it all! I loved his house that looks like corrugated iron and the little buttons and blankets. So I wanted to incorporate these things into the design.
The cake is a chocolate/vanilla marble cake with chocolate ganache.
All decorations are completely handmade and edible. Hoot's head and body are fondant covered styrofoam.
I did not want to let this little bird go! :(
Love his eyes.
The colour scheme in this cake - LOVE! I almost decided on putting the number in some swirl clouds on top of the cake - but it looked overdone, so I decided to make it look like the corrugated iron - LESS is definitely MORE!
