Hens and Chicks
For the hen, frost 2 1/2-inch cupcake with a thin layer of white frosting. Arrange chow mein noodles around outer edge to resemble nest. Pipe mounds of white frosting for the hen's body and spikes for wings and tail. Use chocolate frosting to pipe eyes. Cut gumdrop for beak and red fruit leather for the comb; attach. For the chicks, pipe mounds of yellow frosting to cover tops of mini cupcakes for chicks' bodies. Dip 2 sides of each chick in yellow sugar crystals for wings. Pipe chocolate eyes and cut gumdrop pieces for beaks.
