We baked some yellow cupcakes....made some frosting and added yellow food coloring to it (the color came out sooo pretty). We took some coconut flakes and added yellow food coloring to those as well and shook the bag to mix it all up. We used brown m & m's as the eyes and cut out beaks using gummy candy (peach rings or those sugar sprinkle orange slice things work the best). The kids LOVED them....they are almost too cute to eat, almost ;)
