Happy Bird-day Cupcakes is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 3.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from These were fun to make and they came out better than I expected. At first my icing was too soft and the feathers did not look very realistic, but once I corrected that they came out better. I also had to be careful not to make the bird body too close to the center or too large, because it didn't leave much room for the egg shell. The results were worth the effort.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from This was super easy to do. I made about 56 for a primary activity for our church. Can be done very easily in a "factory line" type fashion if you are making a lot. One thing to keep in mind...when using the leaf tip hold it differently to make the wings and top feathers than you would to make a leaf. Thanks for the great idea wilton!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it !!! Easy to do, directions r very clear and the look is effective. It does take time to mix several colors but it is worth it. I will mix colors early next time or use Wilton tube colors. I made egg shell out of royal so it would have a diffferent texture and b 3 dimentional. So cute !!
