ENTERTAINING: “Fitzoween” Tea Party

After a busy afternoon of shopping at Bloomingdale’s flagship store in New York City, we sought quiet refuge for afternoon tea at the Fitzpatrick Hotel, a scant two blocks away. The hotel is celebrating “Fitzoween” all month with a Halloween-themed tea: cinnamon spice tea, pumpkin scones and midnight chocolate double layer cake.

Make a date and invite your friends to celebrate Fitzoween—or Smithoween, or Schwartzoween, or whatever your name is. Get some Constant Comment, the original American spiced tea recipe invented by Ruth Bigelow (available in supermarkets and from BigelowTea.com). Decorate your midnight chocolate cake with candy corn or other favorite Halloween candy; or serve midnight chocolate cupcakes and provide different Halloween candies so guests can decorate their own. No one is too old to enjoy Halloween candy and chocolate cake!

  • Read our review of Top Pick Of The Week Iveta Scones and try their moist pumpkins scones.
  • There’s a bit of the devil in this flourless chocolate whiskey cake. You can color the white chocolate cream orange for Halloween.
  • Or go straight for the real devil’s food cake. Instead of using heart-shaped cookie cutters as this recipe calls for, to make individual “heart” cakes, use a large round cookie cutter for individual “pumpkin” cakes and decorate with Halloween candy.
