These are practice cupcakes...I wanted to try a bird design and these turned out really well. I like the texture of the wing...I used an embossing tool. Just royal icing for the letters, next time I'll either tint it a color or use something else to fancy it up a bit. Very cute for a baby boys birthday or something. These are for my dog Jack's birthday...he loves birds. Or he just wants to catch them. Either way I'm sure he'll enjoy the cupcakes!
