Recently, my best friend Amanda over at We Don't Give a Hoot, baked some of those super cuter owl cupcakes that have been all over the place, with her daughter Gracie. I just couldn't resist baking some with Elijah last week to celebrate Fall and October, my favorite month. Elijah has helped us a couple times in the kitchen before, but I am now starting to realize just how much our little man enjoys helping out in the kitchen. He doesn't eat real well, but he loves to help make it.
Oh, and by the way... that thing where they say that if they help prepare it, they will be more willing to give it a try? Umm, nope! Not Elijah! But, these were cupcakes, so of course he had no problem gobbling a few of them down.
You don't really need a whole lot of instructions for these. What you see is what you get. We baked chocolate cupcakes, topped them with a homemade frosting I made, split Oreo cookies in half for the eyes, and used Reese's Pieces for the pupils of the eye and the beak.
These would even make a great addition to any Fall festival or Halloween party! Elijah and I don't get out of the house much, so we made them just because. Just because... we're awesome! Ha ha!
Happy Fall, Y'all!
