Coolest Owl Birthday Cake

My Daughter Loves Owls and her favorite colors are Pink and  orange, these are the two things that served as my inspiration for her Birthday Cake. This cake is a double layer 9 inch round Strawberry cake filled with a triple berry filling, covered in homemade strawberry buttercream frosting.  The decorations are made out of homemade fondant  which I added a little tylose powder to so the decorations would stiffen up. When I saw that people added tylose powder to fondant ,rather than having to make or buy gumoaste, I could not find it in the store anywhere by me, so I found it on Amazon if your looking to get some…..a small container lasts a long time and is not very expensive !  To make the owl, all I did was print a picture off the internet, rolled out my fondant, set the owl picture on top and cut out the shape ! EASY !!!  I stuck cocktail sticks in the bottom of the owl and balloons  and then let them dry for a few days on a cookie sheet, I like to make the decorations well in advance, so that the day I bake & frost the cake it’s stress free and actually fun !  For the sides of this cake , I put the frosting in a decorator bag and used a large star tip to make the swirls.
