Back to the recipe. I am not an expert in making cakes or cupcakes. I have got many requests to show how I made these owl cupcakes for my son’s birthday. You can customize it according to what is available at hand. Do not forget to refer the notes section as I am mentioning the alternatives to most of the items used.
Chocolate cupcakes: About 2 dozens or as much as you want, refer notes
Chocolate buttercream frosting: 1 lb or 1/2 kg, refer notes
Mini Oreos: 1 pack.
Chocolate chips (mini) : 1 pack |OR|
M&M Chocolates: 1 pack (chocolate color or dark brown color), refer notes
Open the mini Oreos carefully with the white cream intact.
Use the cut oreo cookies to make ears. So, your owl cupcake is ready. Repeat the same with the other cupcakes. I made about 40 cupcakes.
- You could use readymade plain cupcakes or make it using the cake mix. I made the cupcakes from scratch.
- You could use store bought chocolate buttercream frosting and reduce your effort.
- Skittles can be replaced with Gems (easily available in India)
- M&M’s can also be replaced with chocolate colored gems or I am sure you get mini chocolate chips everywhere these days.
