Now and then Paul pulls a mammoth project out of the bag. This is part two of the epic Potter's Owl design, if you haven't already checked out part one, give it a watch first.
If this cake doesn't stop you in your tracks, then we don't know what will! This is most definitely a cake to impress, and one that would be perfect for an elaborate celebration.
Think big with this one, and don't feel it has to be a bird on that magnificent stand - let your imagination guide you. With the skills picked up in this tutorial, the possibilities really are endless.
In this tutorial, you'll learn how to create a tall stand from scratch, cover awkward shapes, create numerous decorations including dragons and brooches, modelling work, and more! This cake is ideal for an intermediate cake designer looking for a challenge, and would make a fantastic addition to your cake repertoire.

We'd love to see your take on the Potter's Owl cake - so make sure you share your snaps with us on our Facebook page.
