Hoot Owl Cakes


Most of the time, I post about my sewing adventures.  But there are several hobbies I also enjoy besides setting in front of the sewing machine.  If you haven't already figured it out, it is making cakes for members of my family.  When the adults or kids turn a year older, I enjoy making a special little sweet treat.  If you have been a visitor to my blog before, you know that all of us love owls.  So for this birthday, of course you can guess what the theme was.

 I made a little brown owl


And a funky lime green owl.  (Which was my favorite)


We added a little Runt candy strawberry to the chest.  It looked just like a little heart.


The birthday guests thought they were a hoot.
