Preparation of the cupcake owls

  1. With the butter at room temperature (so that it is moldable), you put it in a container together with the sugar . Stir and mix until you get a whitish cream.
  2. Then add the egg with the milk , as well as the vanilla bean. Bat non-stop and a slightly creamier mixture will form, whitish in color.
  3. Sift the flour into a bowl , make a good hole in the center, inside which you put all the yeast, the cocoa powder and a little salt . Stir well to integrate all the ingredients, covering the mouth of the volcano.
  4. Go pouring this mixture into the container of the other mixture, without stopping beating for a single moment. Little by little, you will notice how a creamier mixture is forming . When you finish adding the flour, beat with the electric rods for a few more minutes.
  5. Finally, add the chocolate shavings and stir a little more, so that they are distributed throughout the container.
  6. Grease the cupcake containers with a little butter (so they don’t stick) and fill them with the mixture, but only 3 quarters full . Remember to put a special paper in each hole before pouring the cream.
  7. Start the oven at 180º C and when ten minutes have passed, which will have already reached temperature, then bake for about 15 minutes . Depending on the oven it may take more or less.
  8. After 10 minutes, check that the mixture is rising well. Poke a cupcake to check that it’s done right inside. When the skewer comes out clean, remove the tray and let it cool.
  9. While the cupcakes are cooling, melt the chocolate in the microwave until thick. Then cover the cupcakes with this chocolate cream.
  10. Open the Oreo cookies in half and remove the cream , which you will use to paint on the doll what its nose and iris are. Finally, break a couple of little pieces and use them to simulate their ears.
