Easter Chick Cupcakes

These cupcakes are easy to make and are ideal for giving out as little treats at Easter time.

My eldest son and I made these little Easter chick cupcakes yesterday, he has been practising on his cake decorating skills, I think he done really well.



150g Self Raising Flour

150g Caster Sugar

150g Softened Butter

3 beaten eggs

1 tbsp Milk

1 tsp Vanilla Essence

Yellow ready to roll Icing

Red/Orange ready to roll Icing

Black ready to roll Icing

Butter cream

This recipe will make about 12 cupcakes


  • Pre-heat oven at 180
  • Combine the butter and caster sugar until nice and smooth
  • Add in the eggs and mix together adding a little of the flour to stop it form curdling
  • Stir in the milk and vanilla essence
  • Finally fold in the flour
  • Spoon out the mixture evenly between the cup cases (we always silicone cases)
  • Bake in the oven for 12-15 minutes

Wait until the cupcakes are cooled down, now you can decorate them

  • Roll out the yellow icing until nice and thin, cut out circular discs (we used the rim of a mug which was just the right size to cover the top of the cupcake
  • Using a small amount of butter cream, place the yellow circular discs on the to the cupcake
  • Cut out shapes for the wings and stick them in place using a little water
  • Make little balls for the eyes out of the black icing and stick them in place
  • Cut out little triangles for the chicks beaks and stick them in place
