Last weekend, for Easter, Claire and I made these chicken cupcakes. And by "chicken cupcakes," I mean cupcakes that look like chickens. I do not mean cupcakes that have chicken in them.
And by "look like chickens," I mean that if I tell you ahead of time that they are chickens, you will see the chicken resemblance.
Afterwards, I wasn't really sure how Easter-y chickens are. I guess you could dye them yellow and then they would look like chicks. They are really delicious if you remove the Mike 'n Ikes and licorice before eating them. :) That buttercream frosting is extremely buttery. Yum.
After the first one, we decided to make the rest without feet.
As the buttercream frosting gets warm, the project and the chickens get messier. But do not let that deter you. Also, do not become discouraged if you run out of red Mike 'n Ikes. Other colors also work well. Because as long as you tell everyone these are chickens, they will believe you.
(It is true that during Easter dinner, Faith noticed that if you remove the red comb from the head, they look like Violet the Puppy cupcakes.)
