Owl on a Book

This cake was a compilation of the Birthday Girl's favorite things: Harry Potter (golden snitch on book), Percy Jackson (trident symbol on Camp Half Blood bookmark), owls, and reading. The book is opened to Chapter 12 for her 12th birthday.

The cake was butter almond, covered in marshmallow fondant (MMF). Entirely edible.

The owl was also cake, covered in fondant. I used a 4-inch round pan, sliced off a piece from one side so it wouldn't roll away, then covered it with MMF. I found a similar owl on Pinterest and made a few adjustments.
