Notes

Kids will love decorating these feathery owls with sliced almonds, candy rings and whole cashews. The cream cheese frosting is extra creamy and complements the coconut cupcakes.

Recipe Tip:

The back of a spoon works great to make decorative swirls when frosting cakes and cupcakes.

Butter rum candies with holes are available in bags or rolls. Yellow or orange candies can be substituted for the butter rum.
