A very good friend of mine just had her first baby! A sweet baby boy, who they named Owen.
I had to go see the precious new baby, so I made a cake for the happy family.
Amy loves birds, and has her house decorated with them, so I made some simple birds and blossoms out of modeling chocolate to put on the cake. The cake had five layers of alternating chocolate and vanilla cake, filled and frosted with caramel Swiss meringue buttercream. The branches and bead border were piped in whipped chocolate ganache.
Welcome to the world, sweet Owen!
