Squirrel and Owl Birthday Cake and Cookies
We designed this nature theme cake for a birthday party at the Cora Hartshorn Arboretum in Short Hills NJ.
The bottom tier has chocolate fudge cake and Madagascar vanilla bean filling, the top tier is a white vanilla cake with dulce de leche cream. We sculpted a fondant squirrel with a bushy tail holding an acorn and a blue owl to match the invitations. Little birds and Belgian chocolate twigs complete the decoration.
We also made a dozen matching owl cookie favors with blue fondant.
