Frost each cupcake first, by icing a flat circle on each cupcake. Then on top, add a thicker layer of buttercream, but the circle should be smaller in diameter to its base (this is to form the body and head).
With your black fondant, roll out 24 tiny spheres. These will act as your chick’s eyes.
Add 2 eyes on each cupcake.
With your orange fondant, form 12 spheres, about ¼ of an inch in size.
Shape the fondant spheres into triangles. These will be your chick’s beak. Insert into the center of each cupcake.
Form 24 tiny spheres from your orange fondant. Roll them out to form small, thin lines and then bend them slightly. These will act as your chick’s little feet. Add two to each cupcake.
