Owl Cupcakes

pinned there

I have a new pet peeve. I can’t stand it when someone “pins” something on pinterest without pinning the direct source. I’ve seen pins from sources of just the jpg, pins of the blogs home page and not the direct post, etc. So when I click to see the source or instructions, all I get is the run around. It drives me bonkers. I saw a pin for Owl Cupcakes and I wanted to try it with the kids I was babysitting that night. Much to my dismay, it was not pinned from the correct source. So I was forced to make up on my own (that’s sarcastic, I love getting creative) and this is what I came up with:

How To Make Owl Cupcakes
Supplies You’ll Need:

Cotton Candy
Reese’s Pieces
Frosted Cupcakes (I used a box. I’m no baker)
1. Twist oreos in half to create the eyes. I recommend getting double stuff, because when we twisted, the white middle stayed on one side and we’d have to use 2 cookies for the eyes.
2. Using an oreo half with no frosting, break in half to create the ears/eyebrows (depending on which of my kids you ask, they are the ears or they are the eyebrows. Haha) OR pick some cotton candy out in strips and stick on the frosting
3. Use 1 orange reese’s pieces for the beak, and 2 brown reese’s pieces for the eyes.

Ta-Da! It really is as simple as that. I babysat a 2, 3, 8 and 11 year old that night and all 4 of them loved this. They were incredibly easy and a “neutral” enough creature that both boys and girls enjoyed making them.

    I love this idea! Thanks for sharing! I’d love for you to link this to Things I’ve Made Thursdays. I’m trying something new this week- We have two sections to the party- one for kids’ things and one for “Anything”!! I think this post would be an awesome addition to the “Anything Goes” party!

    Hope you’ll stop by on Thursday and link up!
