Simple Animal Cupcakes: Pigs and Chicks

I made these cupcakes to bring to a friend's birthday party. You don't need to be an expert to make these, they are simple to execute. Here is how: bake up your favorite cupcake recipe, and vegan buttercream frosting. If you are looking for a recipe check past posts for a good one. For the chick, color 1-2 cups of coconut with yellow food coloring, sprinkle a thick layer on top of a frosted cupcake. Use two semi-sweet chocolate chops for eyes, a split orange gum drop for a beak, and a gum drop rolled out into a wing shape (or check the store for some already shaped that way). For the pigs, color the frosting pick, use semi-sweet chocolate chips for eyes, pressed pink gumdrops for ears, and pink dyed marzipan for the nose. Use a frosting tip to add dots for the pig's nostrils.
