I found these completely adorable cupcakes on KitchenDaily.com and I just had to share them with you! Enjoy!
To make your own Owl Cupcakes, you'll need the following:
12 chocolate or vanilla cupcakes baked in brown paper liners
1 can (16 ounces) chocolate frosting
1/4 cup vanilla frosting
1 1/2 cups almond slices
24 chocolate covered pretzel rounds
12 round chocolate cookies
24 black candy covered chocolates
2 tablespoons chocolate jimmies
12 banana-shaped candies
Easy decorating steps:
1. Spoon 1/4 cup of the chocolate frosting into a resealable plastic bag. Spoon the vanilla frosting into a resealable bag.
2. Cut the chocolate cookies in half with a serrated knife to make the owl wings. Cut a small notch from one corner of each semi circle.
3. Spread the top of a cupcake with some of the remaining chocolate frosting and make smooth. Add the chocolate covered pretzels as the eyes in the center of the frosted cupcake. Press the cut cookies, rounded side out, on either side of of the cupcake as the wings. Arrange the almond slices all over the top of the cupcake as feathers. Sprinkle the chest area with the chocolate jimmies.
4. Snip a small corner from the bags with the chocolate and vanilla frosting. Pipe some chocolate frosting into the center of the pretzel eyes and add the black candies. Pipe a dot of white frosting on top of the black candies as the sparkle in the eye. Insert the banana candy as the beak. Repeat with the remaining cupcakes.
