Preheat your oven to 350 degrees and line two cupcake pans with liners. Set aside.
In a large bowl, add the cake mix, eggs, oil, and water. Beat on low until just combined then beat on medium for two minutes.
Use a cookie scoop to fill each cupcake well about 3/4 full.
Bake for 19-20 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
LET FULLY COOL.
Once your cupcakes have cooled, give them a coat of yellow frosting.
Dip the frosted cupcake into the yellow sanding sugar.
With more yellow frosting, pipe on some feathers/hair and the wings (these look like a "7" and a backwards 7).
Switch over to orange frosting and pipe on a beak and little feet.
Pop in two candy eyeballs and use black gel icing to draw on the pupils and give them some personality.
