The first lesson I learned from this project: don't try to replicate an iconic image. My first attempts look more like Frankenstein than owls.
|My first two attempts. I'm a little embarrassed to post these.|
My second lesson: what looks like sloppy asymmetry on one cake pop becomes quirky character by the time I make a dozen. I almost gave up on these little guys because they weren't coming out as well as I hoped, but once I had a critical mass I was actually pretty pleased.
