Birdhouse Cake

A good friend in my department at work recently retired, and I made the cake for the party. Just thought I'd share how it turned out! Yes, it's a birdhouse! I cut off the corners to make the peaked roof, but after trying to put frosting on a newly sawed off cake edge, I don't think I'll be trying it again anytime soon! That bit of chocolate you see in the middle is a hole I cut out of the top cake layer (it's a two layer cake) and is supposed to represent the entrance. I was going to also add the silhouette of a bird and maybe some chocolate "branches" made out of hardened chocolate, but I ran out of time.


  1. Pretty cake, yum! I love the idea of a birdhouse... that's so cute!

  4. What a fun idea! Wish I'd thought of this years ago when my daughter wanted a bird birthday party. I wound up just making a poppy seed cake and figuring it looked a little like birdseed. Your idea is so much better!
