Thanksgiving Turkey Cupcakes

1396962_621732474539941_1862622456_oThese turkey cupcakes are so cool to make for Thanksgiving and even though they look like a whole lot of time went into them it was simpler then you think.

~Make you favorite cupcakes and cool.

~Melt candy melts or chocolate chips and dip top of cupcakes into it and allow to harden. (If you use chocolate chips are a small spoonful of corn syrup to make the chocolate easier to work with.)

~The head – the picture shows fondant being used but lets use half of a Nutter Butter cookie dipped into the melted chocolate and then leave to dry on the side.

~Start with yellow icing and make a rippled edging along one half of the cupcake. When done squeeze the icing back into a bowl and add more coloring to that icing to get layers of yellow, yellow-orange, orange, orange-red, red, and a maroon color (by adding a very small amount of black or purple food coloring to the red).

~Top with Nutter Butter cookie that has pipped eyes, nose and goblet.

Would be great for an extra special treat for your Thanksgiving dinner party – the kids will especially love them.
