This is the long awaited rustic birdhouse birthday bash cake done for STAR MEDICAL. The cake was (we ate it already) orange-tangerine citrus with lemon filling. For you bird lovers, a goldfinch (gum paste & fondant) sits in its nest on a perch. As in a "real" birdhouse, the roof has staples, split logs on the side, moss, & wood slats and woodgrain texture to boot. I could not find a suitable woodgrain mold so I made one myself, thank you fimo dough. I didn't have my photographer handy (Catherine is awake when I sleep & visa versa) . I probably did not do the cake justice with these pics, but others took some too.
If you're wondering the signage on the birdhouse reads , it is "STAR on Shady Lane," which is where STAR MEDICAL is located. It was a great birthday party with some friends we don't get to see every day. The cake was divine. I tried to get the birthday girl to go "Ozzy" on us and bite off the head of the bird, but she would ot. She took it home instead. Alas, some other day. I welcome any comments you might have. I hope by some standards you will think it is "Duff-a-liscious!"
