Clever Chicks Blog Hop #28 with Easter Peeps Cupcakes Tutorial

 EASTER PEEPS CUPCAKES
Supplies:
cupcakes
butter cream icing (purchased from my grocery store's bake shop)
cake decorating bag
#233 decorating tip & coupler
Peeps marshmallow bunnies (with toothpicks inserted in bottom)
jelly beans
green food coloring
circus peanuts cut into pseudo-carrot shapes

Tint icing green and lightly frost cupcakes- it helps the 'grass' stay in place.
Fit icing bag with #233 tip. Squeeze and release bag to create a grass effect on top of cupcakes.
Place marshmallow peeps on top of  cupcakes. 
Add jelly beans and carrot.
Hoppy Easter!

    I just planted some herb seeds for the people, I'd love the chicken salad miX! And though I'd like not to need the wound spray...I'm sure it will come in handy sometime!

    Kathy,

    My first link, Shan-gri-la Farm, I posted mostly for you to see. I thought you would enjoy this. My grandfather owned and operated a poultry farm with a HUGE barn full of chickens!! They sold the eggs in the store right on the property.

  10. Please enter us for the wound spray. I hear nothing but great things about it. It's been on Moma's wish list for a while now, lol. Gotta just go get the stuff. I tell ya the flocks med chest is bigger than ours. It's best to be prepared though. I've actually used it all at one point and was grateful to have had it! Last week we has 2 psycho pits come in where a tree had just fallen on the fence. They too out 11 of our beloveds. Even climbed the ramp into the layer coop. :( You never know. Keep any/all supplies handy for injuries!

  14. I have five wonderful hens, one cuckoo maran, one americauna and three game hens, all rescues. I have never enjoyed anything so much! I learn a lot from your blog. I really enjoy reading the featured blog posts. I have wanted to try vetericyn so please pick me!! AND because I live in the city and our city does not allow chickens loose in a yard mine are in a 20' x 5' x 6' run attached to their house. I pick greens and sprout for them. The chicken salad mix looks like a good idea too. Pick me!!!
