Most of you have probably already seen these cookie owls that I made a few months ago.
I added the brown icing first, doing the wings and ears. When those were dry, I did the head, and when the icing was still wet, applied the white for the eyes. When the brown was completely dry, I added the colored body.
You'll need to wait at least a couple of hours to finish the following steps. To be on the safe side, I usually wait overnight.
I added the dots with a #1 tip, and finished the eyes with black and yellow edible marker.
Of course, you'll want to add a cute little yellow beak too!
For the minis at first, I used a mini round cutter. I needed guys and girl owls for the event, so I added a little bow to the girls :-)
Then I had a request for mini owls that looked the same as my original owls. That is how these little guys originated!
I love their personalities! I want to be the winking one ;-)
Keep it sweet,
