Owl Cake Toppers

My long time friend got married recently and she asked me and our mutual friend Craig to make the toppers for her wedding dessert (she doesn’t like cake).

It all started with some sketches by Craig

The wedding colors were burgundy and green with cream accents. We decided to make the groom owl green and the bride burgundy with cream bellies. We started with the green groom and his dapper accouterments.

The last step was to paint the beaks orange, brighten up the flowers and give the bride some eyelashes.

I was very proud to be able to contribute to my friend’s wedding and I hope these unique little owls become a cherished memento of their big day.
