  • Orange Soft Gel Paste™ Food Color
  • Cake Cloth
  • Offset Spatula
  • White Fondant

Base Layer: Smooth Yellow Buttercream
Start by frosting the cupcake base with smooth yellow buttercream, using an offset spatula for an even application. Ensure the entire surface is covered with a generous layer of buttercream.
Smoothing with Cake Cloth
To achieve a flawless finish, use a piece of cake cloth to smooth out any visible lines or imperfections in the buttercream. Gently press the cloth against the surface, creating a seamless and polished look.
Fondant Shell: Creating the Cracked Egg
Knead a small piece of white fondant until it becomes smooth and pliable.
Roll out the fondant and cut a 3-inch circle using a cutter.
Use a pastry wheel to cut off the top of an egg with a straight edge. Cut different-sized notches using a small triangle cutter along the straight edge to mimic a hatching shell.
Carefully place the fondant along the top edge of the cupcake, creating the illusion of a cracked egg.
Chick's Facial Features: Eyes and Nose
For the chick's eyes, use two black sugar pearls. Place them on the cupcake, ensuring they are appropriately spaced and symmetrical.
Pipe a triangle-shaped nose using orange buttercream and a #2 piping tip. Position the nose between the eyes, completing the chick's adorable facial features.
Finishing Touches
Take a step back and admire your creation. Ensure all elements are in place, and the cupcake exudes the charm of a hatching chick.
Consider adding additional details or embellishments as desired, such as small buttercream feathers or a sprinkle of edible glitter for added whimsy.
