Spring Chick Cupcakes

Spring is in full swing. The flowers are blooming and our local hardware store has baby chicks for sale. As much as we would love to buy our kiddos those cute little fluffy chicks, it’s just not something I’m willing to take on.

To celebrate Spring and a nod to those cute baby chicks we’ve created Spring Chick Cupcakes. Got a potluck Easter party to go to? Kids having a class party? Just want to bake up some cute treats? These Spring Chick Cupcakes are easy to make and yummy to eat!

How to Make these Spring Chick Cupcakes:

What you will need:

  • Your favorite cupcake recipe – I highly suggest using my recipes for chocolate or vanilla cupcakes
  • Your favorite frosting recipe – while vanilla works best, feel free to use chocolate frosting!  
  • yellow sugar sprinkles
  • chocolate chips
  • orange candy slices
  • orange decorating gel

Sometimes, when I’m pressed for time, I use a simple cake box mix or a prepared frosting to save time for the fun decorating I’m going to do. You could even get plain cupcakes at your store and decorate them as chicks at home!

How to assemble your cupcakes:

After you bake your cupcakes and they are all frosted, pour your yellow sugar sprinkles into a shallow bowl.

Dip your cupcake, frosting side down, into the sprinkles, rolling it slightly to cover all the frosting with sprinkles.

Now it’s time to make the cute little spring chick face! Cut the wedges from the orange gummy candies. This will create a small triangle shape.

Push down your wedge of orange gummy into the center of your cupcake to be the beak.

Add 2 milk chocolate chips as eyes and draw chicken-y stick legs with the orange decorating gel.
