Instructions
Roll gum paste very thin. If using a pasta machine, thin to a #4. Lay gum paste or fondant down on a powdered sugar dusted surface or mat. Lay lightly sprayed texture mat on top of fondant and using even pressure, roll pin over mat. Use cutter to cut the textured piece. Roll a piece of orange fondant very thin. Using pastry roller, cut a triangle for the beak. Allow pieces to dry overnight.
Using cake pan as a guide, cut a 2" deep angle out of top of cake. Ice cake with buttercream icing or brush with piping gel and cover with lime green fondant. Roll a thin piece of white fondant and apply frosting sheet. Once again, use cake pan as a guide and use pastry roller to cut the owl's inner body; attach to cake with piping gel. Cut white eyes using the 2" round cutter and cut black pupils using the 1" round cutter. Attach eyes and beak to cake using piping gel. Roll brown fondant large enough to cover cake drum and adhere to drum with piping gel; trim edges. Using Ā½" round cutter, cut polka dots on board. Roll lime green, lavender, and pink fondant to the same depth as the brown fondant and cut polka dots. Replace the brown polka dots with the colored polka dots. Use a small amount of icing to secure cake to board. Layer feathers together using piping gel and attach to cake with icing.
