All credit goes to Jennifer for not only posting the amazingly adorable photos of her owl cupcakes, but also being kind enough to e-mail me a detailed description on how to make these guys!:
My cupcakes (above) did not look nearly as good as her perfect little owls but I was still thrilled with how well they turned out. I’ll definitely make them again, even though cutting Oreos was a painstakingly awful process and I forgot to scrape off the little bits of dark cookie on the frosted side so the owls’ eyes look dirty. Next time I’ll even have junior mints for the eyeballs instead of M & M’s.
But Oh. My. God. were they delicious!
