Owl Cupcakes ~ Hoot Hoot!

Last Christmas when I made snowman cupcakes I swore to myself that I would never do anything like that again. Those cupcakes were a total nightmare! As much as I love all of the darling cupcakes and treats that I see and that I desire to make I honestly do not have the patience for it. When I bake I am much like a tornado. I move quick and fast and I leave a huge mess!

It has been almost a year since I swore off trying to make cutsey difficult cupcakes so this time I picked something that looked much more doable! I found this idea on Pinterest. If you have not been on Pinterest you have to check it out but I will warn you that it is highly addicting.

When I saw  these cute little owl cupcakes I decided that I would give them a try for Hadley’s pumpkin party. They looked really simple and I  felt pretty confident that I could pull them off without too much frustration.

I love the owl cupcakes, they were very easy to make. They are great for Fall, Halloween or even Thanksgiving!

Owl Cupcakes

You Will Need
  • Your Favorite Cupcake Recipe
  • Chocolate Frosting
  • Package Regular Oreos (I used Newman’s Cream Filled Chocolate Cookie’s)
  • Brown M&M’s
  • Candy Corn
Bake cupcakes according to directions. Let cool completely on a wire rack. While the cupcakes are baking and cooling, begin separating the Oreo cookies.

Tip: You can warm your Oreos in the microwave for 5-6 seconds and gently slid one cookie off. Different cookies will pull apart differently. The Newman’s brand came apart very easily and they did not need to be microwaved!
  • Assemble your eyes. Dab a bit of frosting on a brown M&M and place slightly off-centered on the white of the cookie.
  • Frost the cupcake
  • Place two of the Oreo eyes on the cupcake and place the candy corn beak on.
  • Using a toothpick, make “ears” for the owl.
