Everyone will love these chick cupcakes! Easy decorating tips to make cute and delicious Easter cupcakes everyone will love!

Easter treats are the best. Add in anything chick-themed, and you know it’s going to be a hit. Since this recipe is actually made with store-bought cupcakes, all that you have to worry about is adding on the frosting to create the chick. It doesn’t get any easier than that!

The kids will be happy to help decorate, too because frosting cupcakes can turn into a messy job, and that messy job means that they’ll get to lick the frostings off their fingers in the process. (and isn’t that part of being in the kitchen – getting to sample the sweets and treats?!)

Can you use homemade cupcakes for this recipe?

Of course! If you have time to bake cupcakes and have a favorite homemade cupcake recipe, by all means, make it and use it. Just be sure that you let the cupcakes cool down completely before you start decorating them.

If you try and add the frosting on too early while the cupcakes are still warm or hot, the frosting is going to melt right off and cause issues.

While we like to add the yellow icing on and have it smooth, you can add some yellow food coloring to shredded coconut and add that on top of the frosting. This gives a texture look and a fun flavor.

How to store baby chick cupcakes

The best way to store leftover Easter cupcakes is to put them in an airtight container. Make sure that the lid gives enough space so that it doesn’t smoosh the frosting that’s on top.

Can you freeze cupcakes?

You can but just be sure that you freeze the cupcakes without any frosting on them. When you’re ready to eat the cupcakes, you can then unthaw them and decorate them with fresh frosting at that point in time.
