I made these cute little chick cupcakes for our Easter celebration with my family. I saw them on a great site called Bird on a Cake last year and couldn't wait to make them.
To make these chicky cupcakes I followed a tutorial (with pictures) that Robin from Bird on a Cake has made. The only thing I changed for my cupcakes was the tip that I used to make the wings. I used a #3 round tip to pipe the wings on. It's just how I decided to do it at the time, but I think I like the shape and height the wings that the original cupcakes have; so I think I would use the tip she did if I were to make them again (or make more layers with the #3 tip).
My family and I thought these were so adorable. We also liked the little bit of crunch the sanding sugar give the cupcakes when you bite into them. Cute, cute, cute! :)
