Easter Chickie Cupcakes

These easy Easter cupcakes are so cute; they look like they could peep!

Time: 1 hr 25 min
Yield: 24


  • 1 box yellow or devil’s food cake
  • 1 container (1lb) vanilla frosting
  • 2 ½ cups shredded coconut
  • 24 jelly beans

Baked brie with honey and jam


  • 1 wheel of brie
  • 1 package of puff Pastry dough
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tablespoon of water
  • Jam of your choice (the class used about a ½ cup of cranberry )
  • Honey  

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees, and then take your brie wheel and scare the top, then drizzle a little bit of honey on the top of scaring.

Scoop your jam on top of the brie, then drizzle more honey on the jam to your liking.

Wrap your brie and jam with the room-temperature puff pastry dough from top to bottom, fold the corners of the dough to the center, and then where the corners meet top.

Make your egg wash (the water and the egg) and brush a light coat of the wash on the pastry dough. Then, drizzle some more honey around the top of the dough.

Lastly, put the brie in the oven for 20 mins or until golden brown.
