Frosting Recipe for 6 Owls

Butter - 25 grams
Icing Sugar -100 grams
Cocoa powder -10 grams
Milk - 1-2 tbsp milk
Vanilla essence -1/4 tsp


Beat butter until fluffy. Add icing sugar and cocoa into the butter and mix well. Add vanilla essence and milk and beat for a few more seconds. It should be of spreading consistency, so add milk accordingly.  

Let's get to the fun part!

To create Owl Cupcakes, separate the oreo biscuit into half and use the cream side for the eyes.You need 2 for the eyes. Apply a little frosting at the back side of the biscuit and stick it on the cupcake.

Break the other piece (without the cream) into half, apply a little frosting at the back side and stick the ears for the owl.

Stick cadbury gems using frosting for the nose and center of the eyes as shown in the picture below. That's it. Kids could even decorate these cupcakes themselves.

Wow!! Look at the Cute, Delicious, Edible Owl Cupcakes. Perfect for any occasion.

  8. lolx just cute and tempting :) will make for my husband ;)

  9. Awesome awesome cookies. Just wanted to know if I can make it a day before serving these and if yes how should I store them. And should I be putting frosting before or after

    1. Thank you for liking it. You can make it a day before and store them in a box/container and cover them loosely with a lid or inverted bowl.You can put frosting before or after but the cake has to cool down completely. If you have frosted the cake, just put them in a container and store them in the fridge

  10. Can these be made in pressure cooker?

    1. Yes, you can make any cakes in pressure cooker but use aluminum cake cups

  11. Padhu.. I did the similar way...but cup cakes became very hard after sometime. What must hv been the blunder

    1. Some reasons for the cupcake to turn hard - It might be due to oven mixing. Ingredients should be at room temperature.The cupcakes should be removed from the baking pan and should be cooled on a wire rack otherwise they might get over cooking in the heat and become hard.

  12. How to make this cupcakes without oven?
