Easter chick cake


  • Vanilla cupcakes
  • Buttercream icing
  • Yellow food colouring
  • Orange icing pen
  • Black icing pen


1. Ask your child to put a couple of drops of food colouring into the icing. Mix well!

2. Pop the icing into an icing bag (you could use a freezer bag and snip a hole in the corner).

3. Ask your child to pipe one big blob onto the cake, then a smaller one on top.

4. Now, they can draw on two black eyes, an orange beak and feet using the icing pens.
