Chick Cupcakes

Even though Easter is behind us, you can still cute up your normal cupcakes and surprise your family and friends with these little chicks. If you don't feel like baking the cupcakes and get store-bought ones instead, at least treat yourself with some delicious homemade butter-cream frosting.

We find that homemade frosting can turn the most simple cupcake recipe into a fairy tale. Just watch the video and follow the instructions below.
