Hootie Cake

owl cake

I absolutely love this owl cake by side­ways glances. I actu­ally made a ver­sion of this cake myself, I’ll upload a few pic­tures when I get a chance. It’s easy to make & achieve great results.


  • Bake your cake in a square bak­ing pan. Once it’s done, round off the bot­tom of the cake and cut a cres­cent shape off of the top to make the ears.
  • Dec­o­rate with choco­late & vanilla icing of your choice, using the above photo as a guide.
  • Use short­bread cook­ies for the eyes, plac­ing a black-eyed pea in the cen­ter of each cookie.
  • Fin­ish off the cake with a candy corn nose and almond chips for plumage.

Have fun and let me know how it turns out!

    I’m not sure if there are direc­tions posted any­where, but here’s some notes from my attempt:
    – bake the cake in a square pan and round off the bot­tom
    – cut a cres­cent shape off the top of the cake to make the ears
    – eyes: short­bread cook­ies with a black-eyed pea in the mid­dle
    – nose: candy corn
    – use almond flakes for the feath­ers (to place in the area with white icing)

    hope this helps!
