Little Chick Cupcakes


  • Boxed cake mix
  • Lemon Frosting (can substitute any flavor of white icing if you prefer)
  • 1 sm bag Flaked Coconut
  • Yellow Food Coloring
  • Mini Chocolate Chips
  • Gummie Candies


  1. We used mini cupcake tins for our little chicks, but the recipe will also work with full size cupcakes.
  2. Prepare the cake mix as instructed on the box.
  3. Bake up your mini cupcakes as instructed per box.
  4. Allow cupcakes to cool to room temperature.
  5. While cupcakes are cooling add approx. 5 drops of yellow food coloring to your coconut flakes, and mix in a bowl (you can add more or less depending on your color saturation preference).
  6. Once cupcakes are cooled frost them, and then immediately roll the frosted part of the cupcake in the yellow coconut flakes.
  7. Add two mini chocolate chips for eyes.
  8. Cut strips from your gummie candies to insert as a beak.
  9. Enjoy!
