Happy Thanksgiving!































More fun ideas from 'Hello Cupcake'. These turkeys were a little tricky, but they came out great. Somehow they all look really worried about ending up on someone's dinner plate!! They are very easy to make, all you need are cupcakes, mini cupcakes, scalloped cookies, chocolate covered sunflower seeds, candy corn, sprinkles, marshmallows, graham crackers, strawberry fruit leather, a little chocolate icing and a little vanilla icing and bob's your uncle.

I used the Martha Stewart Pumpkin Cupcakes. The recipe says it makes 18, but I must be a bit stingy, I ended up with an additional 24 mini cupcakes! The frosting was a rather temperamental caramel frosting. It was impossible to spread, I ended up making a disc of it and popping it on the cakes. I'm sure it tasted great though!

Have a wonderful thanksgiving, whatever you do. I'm definitely thankful for the encouragement that I get from everyone to experiment with my cooking and keep on baking!

Oh my gosh, those are so cute, looks like they take some time to make.
Caramel frosting sounds delicious, I'm going to have to look up the recipe.
Happy Thanksgiving!

Jenny, Those turkeys are amazing. And they probably have good reason to worry, with that delicious sounding cake and caramel frosting I bet they get eaten before the cranberry sauce!

Have a great T-Day,
Alan from Hello, Cupcake! (the book)

These are very cute! I found the caramel frosting rather tempermental myself, although it sure does taste nice. There has to be a better way to go about it. :)
