I had a potluck party last weekend with the theme of “anything chicken”, so naturally I made chicken (shaped) cupcakes! My chick cupcake design inspirations were from a blog and from an image search on Google.
Cupcake mix, 2 tubs white buttercream frosting (do not use whipped!), candy corn, gummy fruit slices, mini M&M’s. Yield= 18 cupcakes.
Mix & bake cupcakes per instructions (I used lemon)
Scoop 1/4 of the frosting into a decorator’s bag and attach the #21 Wilton’s decorator’s tip
Add more frosting to the decorator’s bag as needed
Decorate the tops of the cupcakes with the decorator’s tip & yellow frosting
Some of the chicks I just left as-is with the eyes and beaks
Others I added little wings- I used Sour Patch candies, when I really should have used gummy fruit candies. Still kinda cute, though.
Finished product- a flock of chicks!
