Owl cake!

While grocery shopping the other day, Michaelyn spied an issue of Better Homes & Gardens with an owl cake on the front.  She insisted she had no choice but to add it and a bunch of cake stuff to the cart.  So yesterday Michaelyn and I spent a part of the day making a blue owl cake.  Yup, no purpose in life for atheists like us.  :)

Round out the bottom and cut a round part out of the top. The top part will come back.


Michaelyn applying the light blue tummy frosting.


Michaelyn being miserable about being an atheist and therefore having no purpose in life.

I’m laying down some diced almond feathers while Michaelyn drops down some blue frosting.

Michaelyn continues with the blue frosting. She actually put me on a feather break so she could stand where I was. I may have spent that time quality-testing the almonds.

Behind that smile is undoubtedly fear of hell and an emptiness drawn from a Jesus-shaped hole in her heart.

I added the Reece’s Pieces beak and feet. I’m a fucking chef. I rule.

Remember that piece we cut out of the top? It came back as wings!

Add some sprinkles because fuck it, life is awesome. :)

    You call yourself pro-science, yet I cannot tell which of the many birds of the order Strigiformes that is supposed to be.

    Beautiful! I’m thinking of making a tie-dye bunt cake for my family’s “Easter” (really just an excuse to get together and eat lots of food) get-together.
