Thank Whooo! Cupcake
*oval, teardrop and flower cutters
*round tip (in this case, Wilton tip 12)
*food safe brush and water
*gold shimmer food color spray (in this case, Wilton Color Mist)
Roll some yellow fondant into a ball and shape tips of owl ears with fingers.
Roll out more yellow fondant flat with the rolling pin and use the cutters to cut out necessary shapes (2x flower shape for eyes and teardrop shape for wings).
Shape the small circle into a ball and then use your fingers to make a tip for the owl nose.
Utilize the modeling stick to make holes in the eyes . With the round tip angled at a 45* angle, make indentations in the large oval for a feather pattern.
With the food safe brush dipped in water, glue all the fondant pieces to the three-dimensional owl figure.
Cover your working surface and spray the fondant owl with the shimmer food color spray. This can be any color depending on the palette of your party! Top on your favorite cupcake and voila!
