1st Birthday Cake Ideas Fondant Cake Decorating Tutorial

With just a couple simple tools, I’ll showyou how to make this adorable owl-themed 1st Birthday Cake!Hey, I’m Joshua John Russell, I’m starting with my cake covered in fondant so next stepto make our owl. First, roll out a piece of fondant and cutan oval using an oval cutter set. Now let’s add some eyes. Cut two circles. Then use the cutter again to cut a small picece from one eye and then join the two cirlestogether to make them look like one piece.

Now, make two small black circles for thepupils and a small triangle for the beak. We can make the illusion of feathers by cuttinga smaller oval and use a circle cutter to leave space for the eyes. Now I will texture this area with a dresden tool. Let’s put him together! I’ll use piping gel to build the owl onto the cake. For the finishing touches, I will add some colorful letters using a letter cutter setand some piping.

Now a popular add on is a matching smash cake. To make this, simply cut a small round of cake and ice it in white buttercream. Then pipe a “1” on top in a pastel color. Colored buttercream on a smash cake can makefor a tough clean up, ao I prefer a simple white cake, but that’s totally up to you!And there you have it, a cute 1st birthday cake and matching smash cake.
