Wise as an Owl - Back to School Cupcakes

owl cupcakes

Remember these guys? I thought these wise old owl cupcakes would be perfect for a back to school treat for dinner tonight since my youngest school aged girlie starts school today.

All you have to do is bake and frost a cupcake. The eyes are an oreo cookie split in half. I made up a little white frosting to fix the eyes when some of the frosting didn't come off right. They take an m&m or a Reese's pieces for the eyes and a cashew nut makes a perfect hook nose. Simple as that.

They are adorable! I am going to share your idea with a teacher friend who is decorating her room with owls. It would be a perfect first day treat for class. Too cute!

I hope your baby has a terrific first day back. I still have two weeks, but I am working in my classroom everyday.
Hugs! Bonnie
