These little cuties are perfect for Valentine’s Day, but would also be suitable for other occasions too. Below I show you how I made the owl cake toppers. After, I also show you how I made the cloud and moon cake toppers too. Click here to jump to the moon and cloud cake topper tutorial.

I made the owl cake toppers from Renshaw Flower and Modelling Paste. I coloured the white paste using food colouring pastes. There is a list of all the items I used to make them at the bottom of this post.

I hope you enjoyed learning how to make these owl cake toppers. If you would like a little insight into how I decorated the rest of the cake then read on.

How I Made The Moon And Clouds Cake Topper

I made the moon from white modelling paste. I rolled it out to about 5mm thick and then used a circle cutter to cut out a full moon shape. To make it easier to place on the cake, I cut a small section off the bottom of the circle. I created a few craters using different sized ball tools and then left the moon to set overnight.

Once the moon had set, I dusted the craters with a mixture of light grey and silver glitter edible dust. I also dusted the whole moon with the silver glitter too.

I used clouds to help support the moon on the cake. To make them I first made small balls of modelling paste and stuck them together as can be seen below. Once they had been left to firm up, I covered them with a mixture of grey and white modelling paste.

I used a dresden tool to help bring out the shape of the balls underneath the modelling paste.

When the moon was finished, I stuck it onto the cake using a glue paste that I made by mixing modelling paste with a clear alcohol. I then supported the moon by sticking the clouds around it. You could also place some at the back too if necessary.

The stars were made from silver modelling paste that I cut out using star plunger cutters. To add some sparkle, I also dusted the whole cake with some silver sparkle too!
