It's Hedwig from the Harry Potter books. Marissa's pretty obsessed with both the books & the owl.
When I was thinking about her birthday cake, I mentioned making an owl cake & right away she specified that it had to be a white owl like Hedwig.
She's demanding a bit.
She's also lucky I love her. ;)
I sketched something out that I thought was do-able & showed it to her. She had ideas that seemed very elaborate & I figured it would be a good idea to wait until she went to bed to start the cake.
Like I said, she's demanding.
Did I mention I love her?
The cake came together much easier than I anticipated it would, considering I freehanded the whole thing.
I'm pretty happy about.
She is too.
I love that girl.
Everyone was excited about their blue tongues after eating the cake.
I made a card for her in record time. Seriously about 10 mins--the fastest card I've ever made. And some pieces were scraps just lying on my desk. I think what made the card come together so fast was the fact that I made it to match the cake. Didn't plan on it, it just happened. I just hope she doesn't mind that the owl is not white like Hedwig.
Did I mention she's a nit picker about details?
We had a simple party with family & friends over to celebrate. She got a lot of nice gifts. Since she is such a big reader (& we're running out of room around here) we got her a Kindle. This will be perfect for vacation since she tends to load up on the books she takes with her.
She was thrilled.
We were happy.
And "Owl" always love her!
