Also wanted to add...don't throw away any scraps you may take off during the process...they're super easy to attach back on if you need extra bulk somewhere, like in the front of your owl, for instance...   It sticks to itself so no glue of any kind needed.
ladyblahblah...can I ask what brand you use?
When working with RKT I'd rather stack the pre-made squares together and carve the shape rather than compress them into a blob and try to mold it...   You can see an example of something I made using this method...scroll down: https://www.facebook.com/notes/partyflours-mimi/how-to-make-a-plate-syrup-pourer/266305146854604   For that size owl, stacking & carving Treats would work perfectly, I think.   (Also, I cover in a thin coat of ganache because when it dries you...
No problem
The waves in your photo look peeled back, but here's a great tutorial that should help : http://www.craftsy.com/blog/2013/06/how-to-make-wave-ruffles/
You're welcome...   (and Thanks!)
When I made one ages ago I pressed a real (brand new out of the package) zipper into a piece of fondant then trimmed around it...you can see it here: https://www.facebook.com/250240051794447/photos/pb.250240051794447.-2207520000.1395455252./250859351732517/?type=3&permPage=1   To get an even more realistic one now, I would make a mold...I wouldn't spend money on mold-making materials either, I would use gumpaste or fondant + tylose and press a zipper into it, let it dry...
Your second post link leads to a page with many cake photos...which cake specifically are you referring to? I thought it was the yellow ombre one??
The close-up of the cake you posted shows that the ruffles are not frilled much and the strips don't appear uniform in size, but these tutorials should still help...   http://bubbleandsweet.blogspot.com/2012/03/how-to-make-pastel-rainbow-ruffle-cake.html   http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ucjsOcitN1c   http://rosebakes.com/how-to-do-fondant-ruffles-on-a-cake/
Here's the best recipe I've ever tried...admittedly I haven't tried many, and I've only made this one twice and both times I used Nestle white morsels, but it's still the best: http://savorysweetlife.com/2009/10/alices-chocolate-chip-cookie-recipe/   The first time I thought they were near perfect, just a little too sweet (I know the white chips didn't help).   The next time I cut back the sugar and it did the trick, but I can't find the paper I wrote the notes...
