Turkey Cupcakes



I'm hoping the children at our Thanksgiving Day feast will gobble up these turkey cupcakes!







To make these, bake cupcakes in foil wrappers. I just baked one batch, but you could make some white and some chocolate cupcakes so you could offer guests a choice of white and dark meat. Pipe on ruffled rows of orange and yellow feathers with angled tips. I used Wilton tips 103 and 150 for the cupcakes pictured. Next use tip 21 to pipe chocolate frosting in the center of the cupcake to make the turkey's body and head. Use tip 80 to pipe on a tiny beak, tips 4 and 3 to dot the face with eyes, and tip 5 to complete the bird with a waddle.



Serve these cupcakes on their side, and watch them waddle off the platter into thankful little tummies!

Thank you so much for the Savannah pictures, Melissa. You're a life saver! I didn't have any problem downloading them, so you'll see them up on my blog in a few days, I'm sure. And, just so you know, you do an excellent job with your photography skills! I'm always very impressed.

Those are precious.... I saw the smaller thumbnail on my home page and thought "those couldn't possibly be on cupcakes! How in the world did she do that!?!" And sure enough, one click later, I find out. Thank you so much for sharing. I've never seen these before (like so many of your cute and creative ideas) and I LOVE them!!!!

I just wanted to let you know that I truly enjoy reading your blog each and every day. I also am a christian mother to 4 children, and I love crafting. When I saw that you were going to speak at a Ladies' Day at Forrest Park Church, I immediately called and requested a c.d. I will have to say I felt so very uplifted. You are a wonderful speaker. I am the chairperson in charge of planning our annual Ladies' Day at East End Church of Christ in McMinnville, TN. I was just wondering if you would be interested in speaking at our Ladies' Day. It will be held in mid April 2010. You would definitely be our honored guest, and we would count it a blessing for you to come and speak to us. If you might be interested, just let me know. My e-mail address is mkbost@blomand.net. If you might want to check out our congregation, our church website is www.eecc.org. If you have any other questions, please feel free to ask. Thank you so much, Kristi Bost
