I made these cupcakes for Halloween a couple years ago; the same time I made the Jack Skellington Cupcakes and Eyeball Cupcakes. I think they turned out really great and they were a hit with the trick-or-treaters!
Each Cupcake is vanilla cake dyed a variety of colors (orange, yellow, purple and green) for a tye-dye effect when you bite into them. The Owl eyes and ears are Oreos, brown M&Ms for their pupils and orange M&Ms for their beaks.
I think these turned out fantastic. Almost too cute to eat! …but then you snarf down 3 of them because they were just so darned delicious!
