Crazy Chicken Cupcakes!

Easter is a funny holiday. With chocolate bunnies, marshmallow peeps, and jellybeans galore who knows what sweets are in store. Thus, I decided to skip the sweet and adorable and create cupcakes that were a little more wacky!

Look out, the chickens are loose! THE CRAZY CHICKENS!

These funny fowl are made from one large cupcake (for the body) and one mini cupcake (for the head). I piped feathers using cake decorating tip #16 and some yellow butter cream. The eyes and beaks are made from fondant, with the pupils painted in with gel food coloring.

Crazy chickens were caught on film by the daring photographer Russell Gearhart, of Russell Gearhart Photography. He's a brave man, these are crazy chickens, he could have been killed.
