One of my very good friends recently defended her Master’s thesis, and if that is not an occasion for cake, I don’t know what is! :)
She is slightly obsessed with owls, so I made use of the owl pan I purchased in the spring, and my tiny little triangular fondant cutters. I actualy had my boyfriend cut triangles while I adhered them to the cake, but after roughly 5 minutes, I took over, he was not as speedy as I had hoped ;)
The cake was plain chocolate cake, and was devoured at the reception following her defence.
