I think owls are super cute! We have them at our house and I can hear them all night long hooting at each other. It is really neat and kinda eerie at the same time. As I sat on the porch Friday night drinking a cup of coffee, I heard several of them and decided to make some colorful owl cookies. I don’t have an owl cutter so I had to come up with something on my own. I am pretty sure every cookier owns these cutters.
Supplies for Owl Cookies:
Use any colors you want for this but here is the list of colors I used.
AmeriColor Sky Blue Thick & Flood Icing
AmeriColor Electric Yellow+ a tiny bit of Wilton Buttercup Yellow Thick & Flood Icing
Wilton Juniper Green + Americolor Electric Green Thick & Flood Icing
AmeriColor Soft Pink Thick & Flood Icing
Wilton Violet Thick & Flood Icing
White Outline Icing
AmeriColor Electric Orange Outline Icing
Black Outline Icing
White Pearlized Sugar Pearls
Eye Template White & Black
- To make the Royal Icing Transfer eyes, you will need, wax paper, tape a flat surface to pipe on and a pattern if you want your eyes to be the same size. Click here for my other RI Transfer tutorial.
- Print the templates above for this step or if you want to make the patterns yourself follow these step: trace 2 different sized decorating tips for the eyes. The large one is a cupcake tip and it is #9FT and the small one is a #2 PME. Remember, when you make RI Transfers, make extra because sometimes they break.
- First, pipe the small circles black. While they are wet, add a White Pearlized Sugar Pearls for the sparkle in the eyes. Let them dry completely. When they dry, carefully remove them from the wax paper.
- Pipe the large circle white. While the white is still wet, drop the black part of the eye in the center. The good thing is, you can make these a few days ahead of time. The bad thing is these have to dry completely before you start your owls.
- I uses an egg cutter from a bag of cutters I got at Wal-Mart at Easter. You can use any egg cutter you have.
- Once you cut out the egg, move the bottom of the egg cutter to the top of the egg and cut it off. The lower you cut, the fatter your owl will be.
- Cut the wings out with a heart cutter. You need 2-half hearts. Mine was a weird shape so I cut 2 and flipped one over.
- Once you have your heart wings, trim them with the egg cutter.
