Thanksgiving Turkey Cupcakes

I am one of those people that see fun turkey cupcakes on Pinterest and think how fun! but never actually make them. I am an ideas person, not the see to completion person! However, I am trying to be the mom I want to be ;) and these looked so fun, I sucked it up embraced the day and made them for our homeschool Thanksgiving Party. Trust me, if it is easy enough for me to do it, anyone can! Also, you can see mine are far from perfect (remember I have no artistic ability whatsoever) but even not perfect they looked fun!

We made some adjustments to the original blog. Here is what we did:

  • We made yellow cake cupcakes according to the package.

  • After they cooled, I frosted them with chocolate frosting.

  • I put chocolate frosting in a Ziplock bag, cut a hole in the corner and made the head and base for tail.

  • Candy Corn for the nose and feathers, white chocolate chips with a dot of chocolate frosting for the eyes.

  • Voila! Fun Turkey cupcakes!


  1. First, these were the cutest and yummiest cupcakes EVER!

    Second, I am still recovering from taking the life of one- that is what I get for trying to carry three plates at once. I kept hearing in the back of my mind "Turkey down! Turkey down!"

    1. Awww thanks! :) And that is too funny! This week I decided to make chocolate dipped oreo turkey lollipops for Thanksgiving so we could do something "different." Ugh, they were way harder than the cupcakes! I think next year I will go back to slacker mom who buys store bought! ;)
