cuppies!

our friend K had her graduation party this past Saturday to celebrate earning her masters degree in education (she's on her way to teaching the 3rd grade)! yay! dan & i thought it would be fun & tasty to bring some cuppies for everyone to enjoy, and knowing that K adores owls we thought some owl cuppies would be most excellent.

these were so super fun to make! using raw almonds & cashews for beaks, newman’s owns & nutter butter bites for eyes - we frosted the chocolate cuppies with vanilla & chocolate buttercream frosting. mmmmmmmmmmm! everyone said they were stellar! hooray for vegan cupcake success!

OMG! I'm totally going to use this idea the next time I have to make birthday cuppies! I love that you used cookies for eyes and how some are big and some are smaller. Nutter Butter Bites are the best!

Those are some really cute cupcakes, I love owls, and yours are especially cute with the big eyes. I would really like to be able to reach into my computer and pull out one of these bad boys right about now.

Thanks for the weight training suggestion, Jessy! I had been talking about it with Mr. Wing-it but I needed a little extra push to get me started! Now that I know it worked out for you I will get started right away! YAY!!
