Chicken is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 1.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Someone asked me to make barnyard cupcakes for a birthday party they were throwing. I had NO IDEA how to make a chicken, but leave it to Wilton to have an easy and super cute way to make them. Not only was the chicken super super cute, but they took no time at all to make. I did mine production style to save even more time.
