Easter Chick Cupcakes

 
What TV commercials do you remember from your childhood?


There is a commercial that I think about every Easter.
It is for M&M's, and features little kids thanking the Easter Bunny.
The part that sticks in my head is the kid wearing a chicken suit at the end...

 "Thanks, Easter Bunny...bawk, bawk!"


Want to make some super adorable chick cupcakes?

What You Need:
A batch of cupcakes
Frosting: yellow, orange and white
Yellow sanding sugar
Decorating bags
Decorating tips: Wilton #102 (petal) and #2 (small round)
Mini chocolate chips

Put some sanding sugar in a small bowl or plate.
Spread a layer of thick frosting on your cupcake and smooth the top.
Turn the cupcake upside down and press into the sugar until it is covered.


Press two chocolate chips into the cupcake for eyes.


Using tip #102, pipe some ruffly wings on each side.


Spoon some sugar over the wings, then shake off the excess.
Using orange frosting and tip #2, pipe a triangle beak and little feet at the bottom.


Using white frosting, pipe a tiny dot on each eye.


He's almost too cute to eat! :0)


Bawk, bawk!
 
I linked up at these weekly parties. And these holiday parties...

    1. "Smooshed peeps"...I love it! I would recommend your local craft store, like Michael's or JoAnn's. And you will need the little plastic couplers to go with them. Have fun! :0)

  34. Thanks for the tutorial. Made them last night. They were surprisingly easy to make and the results are just too cute. I didn't have a 102 tip so I just used a writing tip and they still turned out great. Filled the cupcakes with marshmallow filling they will be the hit of the daycare party today. Thanks Again!

  38. Hi Thank you so much for this idea. The chicks are just so adorable. I just made 18 - they are almost as cute as your's. I didn't do my wings as nicely as your's and we don't have mini choc chips in Australia, so I used regular size ones for the eyes. I am still so happy with them though. Thanks again!
