Last night we made cupcakes that vaguely resemble turkeys. They are easy, and you can use whatever you have on hand--left over candy corn from Halloween, mini marshmallows, frosting and so on.
|Kayla made the cupcakes ahead of time, and we put them in a sealed container to stay fresh.|
|Last night Jasmine and Tyler decided to tackle the project. I frosted the cupcakes with chocolate frosting first.|
|We had two kinds of candy corn, orange and white candy corn m&m's, white and black frosting in tubes, peel and pull Twizzlers and fruit roll ups|
|Regular candy corn, which is orange and yellow, would work well, but we didn't have any left.|
|This guy has candy corn tips with a dot of black frosting for eyes and fruit roll up for his wattle (the flap of skin under his beak).|
|This turkey has a dot of white frosting with a dot of black frosting for eyes, a regular orange m&m for his nose and a piece of peel and pull Twizzler for his wattle.|
|This guy has a white candy corn m&m with a dot of black frosting for his eyes.|
|The eyes were probably the hardest thing to make look okay. For this one, we cut a mini marshmallow in half for the eyes. I think it might be the best eyes out of all of them.|
|To use these for place settings for your Thanksgiving meal, simply write names on a square of graham cracker using a tube of frosting made for writing.|
Below are our finished turkeys that use a variety of candies and foods. Which is your favorite?
Next we are going to make turkeys from Nutter Butter cookies. Stay tuned.
