Owl Cupcakes

I needed to bring a treat for the school bake sale, and came across an adorable picture of owl cupcakes in a Family Circle magazine. I had to make them. They're lots of fun to make, and, I'm sure, to eat!

Step 1: Ingredients

-Chocolate Cupcakes (about 24)
-(2) Family size double stuff Oreos
-Dark chocolate frosting

Step 2: Frost the Cupcakes

You need to use enough that the toppings will stick.

Step 3: Make Eyes

You cut apart an Oreo, leaving all the filling on one side. Take the side with the filling, and push in an M&M. (Brown, green, or blue.) It's hard not to break the filling, so be careful.

Step 4: Make Eyebrows

Take the side of the Oreo without the stuffing and cut it in half.

Step 5: Put on the Face

Put on the eyes, smush on the (orange M&M) beak, and stick on the eyebrows.

Step 6: Eat and Enjoy!

I hope you love the owl cupcakes. I certainly will!

Really cute! And I bet they were a huge hit at the bake sale. Any left over? ;)


These look delicious! I love your creative use of the leftover Oreo cracker-plate for the eyebrows. Great work!
