Spring Chick Cupcakes

Cue: awwwwwwww!

Today, Eric and I are off to my brothers for a family get together! I wanted to make my niece some birthday cupcakes for an early birthday celebration so I searched Martha Stewart for some Spring Cupcake ideas. It wasn’t long before I came across her super cute Spring Chick Cupcakes!

My heart melted when I saw them. Red heart

And then I saw how easy they are to make and I loved them even more. And no chicks were harmed in the process. Well, except when I stuffed one in my mouth!

You won’t BELIEVE how easy these are to make!

What You’ll Need:

  • 3-4 cups sweetened shredded coconut (you want the thick shred)
  • 1 batch cupcakes
  • 1 batch frosting
  • Almonds + something black for the eyes (I used cacao nibs). Martha also used red licorice for feet and hair.

 

Spring Chick Cupcakes

Idea from Martha.

Step 1: Toast about 3-4 cups sweetened coconut at 300F until golden. Remove and set aside. Bake cupcakes (I used my favourite vegan chocolate cupcake recipe) and allow to cool. Once cooled, remove the liner from each.

Step 2: Meanwhile, make the frosting. I used my vegan almond buttercream frosting. Flip cupcake upside down and trim the top so it sits flat on plate. Eat scraps. ;)

Step 3: Frost cupcakes around sides and top. Roll in toasted sweetened coconut and use fingers to cover bare spots.

Step 4: Insert eyes, beak, and feet. I used an almond for the beak and feet and cacao nibs for eyes. See Martha for her suggestions.

These vegan cupcakes always rise so nicely. I had to trim the top a bit so it would lie flat on the plate. I didn’t mind eating the scraps either. :)

Flip the cupcake so the top is on the bottom of plate. Frost sides and top.

Roll in toasted and sweetened coconut (thick shreds) and then garnish with a beak, eyes, and feet.

I can’t handle how cute these are! And I really can’t look at them without laughing. They are a bit homely looking and I love them for that.

They would be really fun to make with kids for Easter too.

Some of you were asking how my back is doing so I thought I would give a little update. My sciatic nerve is feeling about 80-90% better after two massage therapy sessions. I am also keeping up with stretching, ab planks, and yoga. For my cardio, I have been doing the elliptical 5-6 days a week and also light weight lifting a couple times a week. I am hoping to try running sometime this week to see if I have any pain.

My RMT recommended that I pick up a stability ball to use as a deck chair because my posture is so poor and I always get a ton of shoulder pain. Anyone use one at a desk? Hopefully it helps. :)

Have a great Saturday!

I used to use a fitball at my desk – definitely found it made me a lot more aware of my posture + muscles in use, etc. I found I had to swap throughout the day with my regular chair, though, as occasionally I needed the support – weak muscles I guess!
Good luck anyhow.

Those are some cute chicks! I think you get Aunt of the year award!!!

I have used a stability ball at a desk before. It did help my back, shoulders and abs! It helps build your core as you try to stabilize yourself and for fun bounce up and down on it. So much fun and softer than any chair!

I’ve been using a stability ball instead of a chair at my desk for a little over a year now. I enjoy it and I think it has helped my core in general, but not so much my posture. I plan to continue with it though!

Cutest EVER! My Mom asked me to bring dessert next week for Easter. Maybe I can pull this one off? I used to have a stability ball at work, but people kept stealing it from my desk and playing with it, so I just use one in my home office. I was set out to improve my posture, but it also helped to develop my abs! No complaints here :)

That is the cutest thing I have EVER seen on a blog! I am definitely using that idea for Easter festivities :) Too adorable — my heart hurts.

I have known for a while that I need to just bite the bullet and buy a ball to use as a chair — I’m similar in that my posture is poor, and my shoulders hurt all the time from hunching over a laptop all day, lol! I find it strengthens my core and it really does help my sciatica as a result. Major props for being so proactive about your back issues! :)

I used to use a stability ball at my old job and I really liked it a lot. Unfortunately, I don’t use one at my job now because the jerks I work with will probably mess with it. I remember years ago they used to sell a type of “office” chair where it didn’t have a back rest, and you sort of kneeled on it. I can’t remember what it was called, but I think it was made to help people’s backs too.

elli April 16, 2011 at 11:54 am

hi! i am a huge fan, thank you for all that you do and all that you are. i work as a holistic personal coach and am a trained physio therapist, and using the ball as a seat can make it worse if you have instability. i invite you to use it for no more than 20 min a day and focus on lengthening the spine and gently contracting the abdominals (keeping spine long). that trains the supporting core muscles and activates them. they tire out quickly and then wont do their job of stabilizing your back and pelvis and you can end up hurting more. much love, may you heal quickly and may this be an opportunity for rest and growth.

How long are you doing the elliptical for? I have a foot injury and can’t run right now, but I don’t know how long to cross train (on my bike trainer) for in order to keep up my endurance. I’d love your advice on it!

Reply

Angela (Oh She Glows) April 16, 2011 at 2:50 pm

It’s best to ask a professional. My doc said I could do the same time as I was running. So about 45 minutes most days I would say.

Those cupcakes are the cutest!! I also laughed so hard when I read your post with the cupcake recipe. I shared that with my husband and he couldn’t stop laughing either. We both agreed we would definitely eat them though!

Eimear Rose April 16, 2011 at 1:07 pm

I also heard stability balls don’t really help that much with posture. I have a lot of shoulder pain because of bad posture and recently switched to a standing workstation. My chair is still nearby (back removed) for the occasional sit down and it’s helping, it did take a week for the pain to noticeably reduce, I hope it continues! And I hope you find some relief too:)

Angela (Oh She Glows) April 16, 2011 at 2:50 pm

a standing work station sounds right up my alley!!! What do you use for a desK?

Eimear Rose April 16, 2011 at 5:02 pm

It’s makeshift- I just got a spare shelf and raised it with a few boxes- there’s a pic in this blog post http://peskyrunner.blogspot.com/2011/03/helloo-vitality.html
Luckily I am usually in my office on my own (I share an office with a head of lab who is always in and out) so I can stretch, stand feet wide apart and/or shift about from foot to foot without getting funny looks. Initially my colleagues thought it was a bit weird but my overall boss thinks it’s a great idea and is thinking of doing it herself!

Who knew I’d need to REST it. lol. …and that the definition of resting is to NOT use it. Sometimes I just need a professional to break it all down for me.

Homely looking, LMAO!! Cuuuuuuuuutest cupcakes everrrr!! Your niece will love them! Those are the most perfect looking vegan cupcakes I’ve ever seen. I remember the last time you posted them and was astonished at how well they rose. I need to check that recipe out and make a vanilla version. With cake, I’m all about the vanilla! :) Have a lovely weekend!! xo

Angela (Oh She Glows) April 16, 2011 at 2:52 pm

thanks!

I tried this recipe making vanilla…I took out the cocoa powder…and it was a flop. then I tried replacing the cocoa powder with more flour and it was a flop too. very dense result. Boo! I’m working on it…I’ll maybe do a hybrid of the VCTOTW and this one perhaps!

Those cupcakes are too cute for words! “Aw…” was the first thought that popped into my head :-)

Here’s link to stability ball chairs – they actually are used as office chairs, but maybe something like this would be helpful. I’ve heard they’re great for core strength and posture, but I’ve never used one myself. http://swissballstore.com/exerciseballofficechair/

Stability ball…yes, get one! When I was pregnant and had the worst back pain, sciatica, pelvis and bones shifting, hurt to even think straight…the stability ball and sitting on it was the best. It can’t hurt and you may find tremendous relief…I say try it, for sure! I use it now to do all kinds of crunches, curls, pilates/yoga/weightlifting moves, too.

I featured your Back On Track Salad today, too :)

Vanessa @ Project Zen April 16, 2011 at 11:40 pm

I’m actually just starting to get used to using a stability ball at my desk. It does take some time to get used to and it depends upon the height of the desk too – but it’s an excellent way to strengthen your core and spine (it’s like sneaking in a workout!) while you check your email and update your blog. My advice (from one massage therapist to another therapist’s wise words): Doooooo it! :)

Thanks for the cupcake recipe. Do you think the shredded coconut will taste great with banana cupcakes?

Of course, take your time and advise caution when you ease yourself into using a stability ball.

Hey Alison! Thank you for your very kind words. :) I say go for it! I too wasn’t sure if I would enjoy blogging when I first started up, but it certainly surprised me. If you don’t like it, you can always stop doing it right? I think it is one of those things where you don’t know if it will be a good fit for you until you experiment. I always say write about what you LOVE- if baking isn’t your thing, don’t force it. Do what you are passionate about!

During my year of clinical training (I’m a med tech), we had 4 months where we had 8 hours of didactic training (lectures) every day. That’s 4 months of sitting on my rear end at a desk for 40 hours a week. So when my mom sent me a fit ball for my birthday early in the year, I took it to school and sat on it during lectures. Everyone gave me strange looks the first couple of days, but it was SOOO much better than sitting in a chair – and bonus – it gave me freedom to “fidget”, as I’m prone to doing!

P.S. I’m definitely trying your cupcakes – they look DELICIOUS!

I made these today! I saw your post about them and just had to try them! I looked up the recipe on Martha’s website just to see what else I could find, and I ended up making both the Spring Chick Cupcakes and some that have little bluebirds in a nest.

They’re just so cute, and a nice Easter treat that I brought to a family dinner! Thanks for the inspiration :)

Hi Angela,

Amazing blog! I’m not much of a cook, but your website is truly inspiring me to try some recipes… my family is wondering what’s wrong with me :)

As for the stability ball; is it supposed to help with upper back and neck pain as well? I’ve been in chronic pain with this since a car accident two years ago and am desperate for help. Chiro and massage help a bit, but sitting at a computer, or in the car, are my two undoings over the course of the day. Anyone? Any thoughts are greatly appreciated!

So cute!! Someone inevitably brings a “Bunny Cake” to Easter, and this year I’m totally going to make these adorable little chicks to combat the overly-sweet, supermarket frosted confectionary disaster! I love the idea of toasting the coconut – YUM!

I love these so much!! They definitely make me smile and giggle a bit, too. :) I might have to steal this idea yet sometime this spring… for no particular reason, even….

Thanks for sharing your tasty creations! I recommend more people to YOUR blog than any other. I always love your recipes. :)
