It was teacher appreciation week this week, and my oldest daughter told me she wanted to make her kindergarten teacher a cake. She said it had to be an owl cake, because her teacher loves owls and collects owl things.
So we made her a 6-inch 6-layer chocolate cake with homemade marshmallow filling between layers, frosted with chocolate ganache, and covered in homemade vanilla fondant, with modeling chocolate decorations.
The cake was a big success, and Mrs. Jordan loved it! The side of the cake says, "Whooo Loves Mrs. Jordan?" Lizzy really wanted to pipe "Lizzy" after those words, but I didn't have the cake finished in time for her to do that before she had to leave for school, so I brought the piping bag with me when I picked her up, and let her pipe her name on it in the hall right before we gave it to Mrs. Jordan.
