Do you love Oreo cookies? How about cupcakes? If you answered yes to both of those questions, then you’re going to love this recipe!

– 1 cup all-purpose flour – 1 1/4 tsp baking powder – 1/8 tsp salt – 2 large eggs at room temp – 3/4 cup sugar – 1/4 cup unsalted butter, cut into 1/2” cubes – 1/2 cup milk – the higher the fat content the better – 2 tsp vanilla extract – 1 1/2 tsp vegetable oil


For Decorating: – Yellow cupcakes, baked and cooled – Oreo cookies, 2 cookie halves with cream filling for each cupcake – White, chocolate, light brown, and dark brown frosting – Orange cookie frosting

Pipe a base layer of white frosting on each cupcake. Use the light brown frosting to create the body feathers of the owl, overlapping the frosting on the middle of the cupcake.

Use the dark brown frosting to create the wings on either side of the cupcake.  Place 2 Oreo halves, with the cream filling side up, side by side at the top of the cupcake.

Use the chocolate frosting to create an eyeball in the center of each Oreo.  Use the orange cookie frosting to create the beak and claws. Your owl is complete!
