Owl cupcakes with Memaw

Hoot Hoot!
Hoot Hoot!

I realize that moms can go to pinterest and find anything they want for craft ideas.  We are with my MIL this week, and she found the following idea in a good-ole fashioned magazine.  I appreciate crafts and recipes that are easy to do with kids.  I especially appreciate them when I actually have the ingredients in Peru!  These were too cute, and the kids had an absolute blast with their Memaw and cousins making them…


  • chocolate cake mix
  • chocolate icing
  • Oreos
  • M&M’s
  • sprinkles (optional)
  1. Make cupcakes out of cake mix.  Allow to cool and ice them generously.
  2. Take Oreos and separate the cookies so that the white is on one side.  Use the whites on cookie from two cookies for the two eyes.
  3. Add M&M’s in the middle of the whites (use a little chocolate icing as “glue”).
  4. Push one M&M into the icing below the eyes for the beak.
  5. Add sprinkles for fun.




Thanks, Memaw, for a super fun and delicious activity!!!
