Owl Cupcakes

Before school ended they had an event where they asked for cakes for the cupcake walk. The previous year I made a monkey cake this year they had a zoo theme again so I made Owl cupcakes. They gave out awards for best cupcakes / cakes, yes I'm competitive and a little upset when I did not win ... lol. Next year it is on! I saw several ways to make these but the one's I liked the best was on Family Circle.


What you Need:
Cupcakes frosted with brown icing (I made chocolate cupcakes also)
Oreo's
Brown Candy (or Modeling Chocolate like I used)
Orange Candy (or Modeling Chocolate like I used)

First, frost the cupcakes with chocolate frosting. Next, untwist two cookies and carefully push two brown candies onto the white part of the cookies. Place the cookie eyes onto the cupcake. Then put an orange candy on its side in between the eyes to make the owl beak. Swirl some owl eyebrows at the top if you’d like.

Alexis Notes: Now I had some modeling chocolate on hand from a previous cupcake so I used what I had instead of running to the store. Might be why I didn't win my cupcakes were a bit rushed since I forgot about doing them until hours before they had to be delivered .. lol. I also skipped doing the eyebrows out of frosting and made them out of Oreo's I halved (with the white cream taken off).
