Harry Potter and Owl Cupcakes

Pin It
In my previous post I shared a tutorial for the Harry Potter cake I made for my son's birthday party, (you can check that out here)
I knew I wanted to have some cupcakes for the kids as well, and owl ones seemed perfect for this theme.
Plus, I've seen pictures of owl cupcakes on Pinterest for years, so I was excited to finally make some of my own! :)
I learned a few things through the process, so I put together a quick tutorial for you.

Harry Potter Cake

Pin It
For the last few months my oldest has been on quite the Harry Potter kick.
He has read the first 4 books and even dressed up as Harry Potter for Halloween.
So when the time came to talk about his birthday it was no surprise what he wanted for the cake.
Harry Potter.
(We also made cupcakes, but that will be another post).
I didn't have as much time as I wanted when I was decorating this cake, I probably would have paid a lot more attention to detail and smoothed out the frosting a little better, but my son was super happy with it, so that's all that matters!
I made the batter from scratch using my yellow cupcake recipe. (You can find that recipe here). 
I made the full recipe, plus half.
This allowed me to make 24 cupcakes and one 8-inch cake.
