|This recipe makes for some VERY cute owl cupcakes!|
Whooo whooo whoooo's been baking? These owl cupcakes are adorable. I made about 4 dozen of them for a toddler's birthday party. Probably the moms got a bigger kick out of them than most of the kids. It's all the same to me! It's not too hard to make a batch or two . . . but if you'd like to make more than 30, get a kitchen party going so you have some help with the assembly. Read on for the how-to.
How to Make Owl Cupcakes
If you want to learn how to make owl cupcakes, I describe the necessary steps and decorations below. I used an owl cupcake design that I found through a Google search, but made some small changes: I used mini Oreos for the eyes, and the pupils and beak are Reese's Pieces.

It turns out that you don't have to split the candies that make the beak, as long as your frosting is deep enough to bury the lower half in.

It's pretty tricky to avoid getting Oreo crumbs on the white part of the cookie, though heating the Oreos in the microwave makes it easier to separate the halves.

Owl Cupcake Feathers = Sliced Almonds

Then, I piped some brown icing to make feathers under the beak. Voilà!
