This easy-to-make Easter chick perched on a grassy coconut knoll will sweeten anyone's holiday.

  • 2 tablespoons of shredded coconut
  • Green food coloring
  • 1 cupcake
  • Green frosting
  • 2 plain doughnut holes
  • Toothpicks
  • Yellow frosting

How to make it

  1. Place the coconut in a resealable plastic bag with a few drops of green food coloring. Shake the bag to color the coconut. Then transfer it to a bowl.

  2. Sweet Tweets - Step 2

    With a paring knife, remove a quarter-size portion of the center of the cupcake top. Frost the cupcake green, including the indentation. Dip the frosted cupcake into the coconut and add a dollop of yellow frosting to the indentation.

  3. Trim a small slice off the doughnut holes so each has one flat surface.

  4. Skewer a doughnut hole on a toothpick, frost it with yellow frosting, and place it in the cupcake indentation flat side up. Use the same technique to frost the second doughnut hole. Stack it on the first hole flat side down.

  5. Cut a small beak from the gumdrop and push it onto the chick's head. Finally, add 2 black gel eyes and watch your guests chirp with pleasure!
