I made these for my daughter’s 2nd grade class for Valentine’s Day. Owls are the obvious choice because it’s her school mascot. They are also a forgiving animal in the design department. If you want to make them, you can do it with these easy steps.
I used the tulip cookie cutter and cut off the middle pedal and the stem. Start with piping the outline and then flood.
For the feathers on the chest, I brought the heart motif. It’s really not that hard to do. You drop a dot of icing and then pull a clean toothpick through it. Clean the toothpick each time or it will drag the other color into the area you don’t want. Also, work one at a time before the icing sets up.
After it has dried, pipe on the wings and ears.
Next comes the eyes, beak, and feet. I must have been a little tired because I forgot to take any more photos. The end result is still the same, a pretty cute owl. Cross your fingers my daughter’s teacher lets us bring non-store bought goodies or I will have thirty owls looking for a home.
