Made especially for my friend Rachel’s annual Halloween fiesta, this cake is one part owl + one part witch (actually
witchy cat) + one big part Coco Cake tutorial.
In total, that makes for one wicked cute Witchy Owl Cake! Whooo loves ya!
Miss Lyndsay aka Coco Cake’s tutorial made this cake’s creation a pretty painless process. I made the fondant pieces in advance, so baking and decorating the night before was stress-free.

Cake-for-breakfast is one of my favorite ways to buck life’s conventions.
Growing up, my mom would’ve never allowed cake-for-breakfast. A sweet treat so early in the morning? Heavens no!

To be honest though, she’s 1.3 years old and with the craziness of moving twice in two months, her birthday fiesta was nowhere near the extravaganza I would’ve liked it to be.
So I’m celebrating her big first birthday on the blog. It’s a bit belated, but better late than never, especially when french macarons are involved!
While french macarons sound quite fancy and formal, when shaped like bears, colored pink, and doodled on with edible markers, they’re all fun and giggles.
Whenever I make a cake for a friend, I ask if they have a flavor preference, hoping to make a treat that really speaks to their sweet tooth and makes them smile. That’s the whole point, right? A happy cake-eater.
Alas, 9 times out of 10, I’m asked to make something chocolate-y. Not going to lie, while delicious, chocolate-frosted cakes make me a little sad.
rainbow frosting stars. No turquoise and lime green swirls. No furry white bunnies.
I just love decorating with color and the premise of using straight brown is creatively limiting.
