Chick Cupcakes

These adorable Chick Cupcakes are super easy to make.  I was inspired by the ones from Martha {we’re on a first name basis, didn’t ya know?} where she used the entire cupcake as the body of the chick.  I decided to keep it simple and just decorate the top.April 2012 214
I used toasted coconut for the body, licorice for the ‘hair’, graham crackers for the beak and black gel icing for the eyes.  Oh and I filled each vanilla cupcake with raspberry pie filling.  Raspberry and coconut?!?  My new favorite combo for sure!

A batch of these little guys were off to school with the little miss and preschool with the boys last Wednesday.  They were also one of the cupcakes that we decorated during my Cupcake Creations course last Monday!  Fun right?!?  I have the best job!
We’re loading the van this morning for an eight hour road trip with the kiddos.  I can’t wait for some family time!  We’re all staying in a hotel so the kids are pretty excited about the pool.  I’m looking forward to our glow-in-the-dark Easter egg hunt {using this fab plastic eggs and glow sticks idea}.   The kids are seasoned travelers but I may use some of Cheri’s 10 Ways to Keep Kids Happy in the Car ideas too.  

Have an absolutely wonderful Easter Weekend!  I’ll be back on Tuesday with another Top Tutorial.
