|My inspiration came from Pinterest, and yes, theirs are a bit neater than mine!|
|After I baked 24 cupcakes, I opened a package of Oreos are starting divvying up the “eyes.” We were one short, so I emailed this photo to A and asked if she thought one could be winking? (We decided on “no.”)|
|You just pop on two Oreo halves (with icing), and put brown Reese Pieces as pupils, and an orange one as the beak. So easy and cute!|
|Here they are on the table, ready to be gobbled!|

The owl cupcakes were a big success, and everyone loved them. I would definitely recomend making them — super-easy and very adorable.
Oh, and I also made another Pinterest-inspired dish for the party — those little layered Mexican dip cups. But I was a bad blogger and didn’t take a single progress photo, so here is a photo I snapped before eating a leftover one after the shower.
|Mmmmmm, Mexican dip!|
Unlike the owl cupcakes, these dips were a HUGE pain in the butt. I used a baggie to pipe the cream cheese/sour cream mixture into the cup, and it got all over the sides anyway. Same deal with the salsa.
But they do look cute, and they were delicious — plus you didn’t get any grossness like you do in the giant communal Mexican dip. So damnit, I’m sure I’ll make them again.
This is what Pinterest does — it makes things look cute, sometimes it’s easy to recreate and sometimes it’s hard, but it doesn’t stop sucking us back in.
Love you, Pinterest!
