This is an old post that I wrote two years ago, so therefore this idea is four years old!! Ugh that makes me feel old. I should definitely redo them. However, it’s cute and easy to do, especially with children. These would be the perfect addition to school thanksgiving feasts.
These cupcakes are old and these photos are blurry. Now you know where I stand.
I made these cupcakes two years ago but I found the pictures tonight when I was going through the old pictures on our hard drive. This is the perfect time to show you them! You will have time to make them for your kids thanksgiving feasts, well some of you might. These would also be the perfect dessert to bring to a get together this weekend.
They are so simple to make. Frost a cupcake with light brown frosting. If you want to use canned frosting (yuck.. agh. .uck…) just mix chocolate and vanilla together to get lighter brown. Ice the cupcake with a thick layer of frosting on top.
Take gel icing colors you buy at the store and make big rainbows using different colors. Now take a toothpick and drag from the outside of the cupcake into the middle, going around the outside edge of the cupcake. This makes the tail feathers.
Next, top the cupcake with a Nutter Butter cookie. Add eyes and the red hangy thing (I don’t know the name of it) using the gel icing. I added a beak using banana laffy taffy cut into a small triangle.
Voila’! Finished Turkey cupcakes. Now go out and Gobble till you Wobble!
