Easter Chicks Cupcakes Recipe

Please remember that I don’t eat this stuff so I did not test this recipe. I’m just posting so you can try it!


For Cupcakes
1 box Betty Crocker SuperMoist yellow or devil’s food cake mix
Water, vegetable oil and eggs called for on cake mix box

For Frosting and Decorations
2 1/2 cups shredded coconut
Yellow food color
1 container Betty Crocker Rich & Creamy vanilla frosting
48 brown miniature candy-coated chocolate baking bits
24 small orange gumdrops

Darlene’s Tips:  Use store brand cake mix and frosting to save money!  You could skip the baking if you want and just decorate the top of store bought cookies using the same method.


Step 1:  Heat oven to 350°F (325°F for dark or nonstick pans). Place paper baking cup in each of 24 regular-size muffin cups.

Step 2:  Make and bake cake mix as directed on box for 24 cupcakes. Cool in pans 10 minutes; remove from pans to cooling rack. Cool completely, about 30 minutes.

Step 3:  Place coconut in resealable food-storage plastic bag. Add about 8 drops yellow food color; seal bag and shake to mix. Frost cupcakes with frosting. Top with yellow coconut. For eyes, add brown baking bits. Cut orange gumdrops to look like beaks; place on cupcakes. Store loosely covered.
