Owl-inspired cake

surprise bday cake

When I ordered this birthday cake at the restaurant of Torre Venezia Suites, I specifically requested the personnel to place an owl on it. (N loves everything with owl design). I thought they would place an owl candy topping but this one is better and really creative (thanks to Red Ribbon and Rocca Ristorante) as they place a printed owl to form number 8 plus a single candle (to create 18).

Tiramisu Meltdown is one of the best cakes we’ve tasted from Red Ribbon. It is now the family favorite cake.

Cake details based on RR’s website:

A heavenly two-layer cake of choco chiffon and cream cheese filling with a hint of coffee liquor.
