Owl Cupcakes

Owl Cupcakes for Halloween

Owls and Halloween.  Who ever decided these two things go together?   Well, if you google it (which, of course, we did) it goes way back.  Like, way, way back.  According to Haunted Bay, the Romans were one of the first cultures that viewed owls as spooky creatures. The owl symbolized death, doom, or destruction and the Romans believed owls emerged from another world. Owls were also believed to be the animal form of witches and feed on babies. The Romans believed that a dead owl nailed to their front door would stop evil forces.  Ummmm…. yikes.

So I guess I get why Owls are considered Haloween-ish.  But regardless, these were just too cute not to make, Halloween or not.

These are all over the web (I’m sure) but we saw these on the cover of the November edition of our Family Fun magazine.  And my daughter had a blast making these!
