DIY Tutorial: Owl Cupcakes

Wednesday, November 2, 2011

Another SUPER ADORABLE tutorial from Xiaolu of 6 Bittersweets! And what a wonderful, yet yummy, decoration for the ever-so-popular owl-themed baby shower. I might just have to make some with my kids -- they are just so darn cute. Plus... you can't go wrong with cupcakes. No matter the occasion.

From Xiaolu... Since I already had to buy Oreo cookies for the owl "eyes," I figured I might as well step it up another notch by adding them to the batter. On the other hand, I saw no need to pipe frosting on these already-darling ears, so I (gladly, since it was 2 a.m. by that point) dropped that part with no ill effect that I can tell. 

My friend Kelly, upon discovering what the cupcake fairy had left in her office, even exclaimed this was "seriously the cutest thing" she'd ever seen and that she enjoyed its adorable stare. Cupcake.Win XD. To balance out tootin' my own horn hehe and because they're truly charming and creative, I recommend you check out this round-up I found of other owl cupcakes.
