Don’t you think this weather is just wonderful? Don’t get me wrong, I just love the summer months but sure am ready for those cool, crisp mornings to stick around for awhile. I found these cute little owl cupcakes and thought how great they would look for your guest.  Hope you can find a cute tree or maybe make one out of papier mâché to stack them on because who just wouldn’t love them? That would be a fun project for sure! Hope you enjoy and happy eating!!!
