Hello Miss Tweedle fans! Mrs. Stimming here!
Miss Tweedle and I work together and she has been asking me to do a post for a while now. To be honest, I am not much of a crafty person myself. I like to follow Miss Tweedle’s blog and read about all the great food, but my husband actually does most of the cooking at our house.
As always, I had to modify it and make it my own creation.
2 sticks of unsalted butter
2/3 cup of milk
1 tsp of vanilla
3 ¼ cups of icing sugar
Combine the chocolate and the icing sugar mixture and set aside to set and thicken before use.
Step 3: Place one of the leveled cakes on a serving plate and cover with frosting.
Step 4: Place the second cake on top with cut side down. Cover with frosting.
Step 5: Decorate! Cover the bottom half with chocolate buttons over the bottom half of the cake to create the look of feathers. Cover the top half with a mixture of your choice of sprinkles. Next, pipe the remaining frosting as feathers around the owl’s face. Lastly add eyes, wings, and feet. I used the picture in the book as a guide and went around my small town shopping for what I thought would work best. Over the years I have come to realize that your cake will never look like the one in the book. Just accept that and have fun shopping for candy that will work. This makes your cake an original and almost always better!
