Mom & Baby Owl Cupcakes

Hoot Hoot! Turn your cupcakes into baby and mommy owls for the perfect treat for an owl themed baby shower or birthday party!

For this owl themed baby shower, we made owl cupcakes in two sizes to symbolize "mom" and "baby." These are super easy to make and starts with a boxed cake mix or your own favorite recipe.

  • Prepared cupcakes in regular size and mini size
  • Dark chocolate frosting
  • Chocolate and/or Vanilla sandwich cookies
  • Mini chocolate sandwich cookies {mini Oreos or mini Nutter Butters}
  • Bag of Regular M&M's
  • Mini chocolate chips



Frost each cupcake with the dark chocolate frosting.

Pull sandwich cookies apart carefully, saving the cream-filled side. Lay cookies on top of frosted cupcake, cream side up. Use your left over cookies without the frosting to make cookie truffles !

Pick out pairs of green or brown M&Ms for eyes and put a dab of frosting on the side with the "m" and then place it on top of the cookie.

Cut an orange M&M in half and place one half flat-side down for the beak.

For the mini cupcakes use the mini cookies and mini chips for the eyes.
