It's Superb Owl Sunday, y'all!!
Though I have a confession to make: I only go to Superb Owl parties for the food.

And yes, you can eat this owl. I mean, I suppose technically you could eat ANY owl, but this one is cake and therefore tastes better. Plus, look at the sculpting! The painting! Incredible.

This one is still pondering the ramifications that all owls are technically edible. I like how his eyes glow when he's deep in thought on his Thinking Branch. So cute.
If we're talking superb owls, though, then one clearly flies above the rest:

HEDWIG! Best postal carrier ever, am I right? Though she misplaced a very important letter for yours truly a while back, and I'm still not over it.
This owl understands:
(By Klobouckovic Dortiky, Czechia)
See, she looks both snuggly and like she's about to say something devastatingly snarky, which is really the best combination.
And if I'm being honest, there IS an owl I love more than Hedwig, and that owl is... DAVID BOWIE.

That line makes sense if you grew up in the 80s. Also this barn owl flew right out of Labyrinth to serenade me with As The World Falls Down, so give us a moment.
(And yes, cake! It's cake! AHHH-MAZING.)
This precious pastel patchwork is prettier than a peck of posies:

I dare you to read that line out loud and not spit all over your keyboard. I also dare you to find a better candidate for a plush toy - 'cuz YOU WON'T. (I want her as a pillow!)
Bringing it back to Harry Potter again because hi, it's me, and also because this cake topper is making me melt:

That seller only makes the topper part, not the cake, so I'm cheating by including this here.
Cheating, and not sorry. Look at the wands holding up the bunting! Eeee!
I noticed a lot of owl cakes look the same out there, so I made a point of specifically finding one with an owl wearing sneakers:

You just don't see enough of those. Also the balloons are fantastic, I love the soft shading.
This pudgy lil' guy looks like a steampunk ringmaster, which is really the best aesthetic for an owl cake:
(By Bloom Cakes, Cambodia)
Buttons and bunting and bug-eyes, oh my! THIS IS SO CUTE.
And finally, the owl cake that will make you wish all owls - cake or not - came with bright teal and purple feathers:
(By Natalia Salazar, North Carolina)
Also Pixar eyes. And a one-to-one head-to-torso ratio. And itty bitty toesies. And a cutesy-pootsy widdle nosey-wosey OK sorry I'm done now.
Hope these make your Superb Owl Sunday a little more super, minions, and that your week is extra Sweet!
