For the food gel colorings, I chose brown, white, lime, grey and orange. You can chose use the same ones or create your own color palette.
Once you've made your cookies and they're ready to decorate:
Pipe the owl's body using a #2 tip. Let dry for a minimum of 6-12 hours. The icing basically acts as sealant for freshness, so it's okay to let the cookie dry uncovered at room temperature.
Pipe the whites of the eyes and let them dry for a minimum of 6 hours.
Using a #2 tip, pipe the belly and add the 'feathering details' right away. Pipe the pupils and wings. Let dry.
Add the feet and beak using a #2 piping tip, and pipe the leaves using a #67 piping tip. Let dry for approximately 6 hours.
Follow the same steps for the Momma Owl. Her body shape is just a little bit different.
Now you're ready to package or serve!
