Easter Chick Cupcake Toppers

Easter is just around the corner and this year and it seems like it came out of nowhere.
I always just assume it's in April , so when it comes in March I am usually caught off guard.

I made some fun , easy, cupcake toppers last night that I think will look cute on some Easter Cupcakes.

You will need some white, yellow, orange and black fondant.
Mix each color of the fondant with some gum paste to stiffen it.

Roll out some yellow fondant / gumpaste mixture and cut circles with a 2 inch biscuit cutter, or any 2 inch round cutter.
Then cut a small daisy, or any other flower that looks similar.
I used Sunflower Sugar Art's smallest daisy cutter that came in the set .

Roll out some white and cut circles with the 2 inch biscuit cutter.
Use a drinking straw and cut out circles for eyes.

Roll out some orange and cut small squares. If you have a square cutter you can use that, I didn't have one handy so I cut some squares free hand.

Roll out the black and with a small cocktail straw cut out circles for the pupils.

Now to make our hatching chicks.

Cut a 1/4 inch strip out of the middle of the white circles with an Exacto knife.

Then cut a zig zag pattern on each piece.

Lay each 1/2 on a yellow circle.

Add the orange square, I used my knife to make a line going horizontally across the square for the beak.

Add the white dots.

Add black dots .

Now for the chicks who have already hatched.
Add the daisy to the top center of a yellow circle.

Next add an orange square to a yellow circle and score horizontally with an Exacto knife.

Add the white dots.

Add the black dots and the chicks are done.
