I’m at the table with a final post for Halloween before I pack up and put away my cauldron and broom for another year!
I found an owl table runner roosting at HomeGoods, my favorite haunt.
And owl cake pedestal came from Pier 1 recently. . .
Scarily perfect to pair with Better Home & Garden Owl plates found at Walmart several years ago!
Bare twig trees wrapped in burlap came from the dollar spot in Target last year, a tribute to haunted forests. . .
Fitting for raptures of the night alongside Baby Boo Pumpkins!
Owl napkin rings pair checked black napkins with spider webbed ones.
Owl cakelets are a sweet treat rising up from a silicone Woodland Owl Baking Mold from Sur la Table, purchased at our cooking class.
I used a doctored spice cake mix and maple glaze for these owl cakelets.
To doctor any boxed cake mix, substitute buttermilk for water and add one extra egg. Follow the box directions for mixing and baking.
1 cup powdered sugar
1⁄4 teaspoon cinnamon
1⁄2 teaspoon vanilla
1⁄4 cup good maple syrup, more if needed
In small bowl whisk ingredients until smooth until you have desired consistency, adding more powdered sugar if glaze is too thin or more maple syrup (or milk) a teaspoon at a time if glaze is too thick.
You can find easy Owl-oween Cookies that are a hoot to make, here.
