Last year I did this awesome tutorial on making Turkey cupcakes for Thanksgiving. I was a guest post-er on CakeSpy’s website.

Thanksgiving. The holiday of food, er giving thanks for life’s bounty. A few days to indulge in excess of food, family, travel and shopping–that is to say, a great holiday. No worrying about giving and getting presents: just a day to enjoy stuffing ourselves, making more room and saying thanks for that delicious turkey.
Back when I first started exploring baking creatively, I came across this idea for making Thanksgiving turkey cupcakes. At first I was a little skeptical because it looked like a lot of work and up to the point my decorating skills consisted of a butter knife and a slab of frosting from a can. But I couldn’t resist, and I found that these were really easy to make and so irresistibly cute. This is also a great thing to give kids something to do later in the day. They can assemble their turkeys and throw a turkey parade to rejoice for those birds that survived another year. Or the kids can make them ahead of time and you can use them as your table centerpiece. Just arrange on a platter and stick some flowers in between the cupcakes.

Hope you have a great Thanksgiving! And come see us at the Patchwork Festival in Santa Ana on Sunday!

  1. How cute! Looks like they're made with Nutter Butter cookies. You could make them into other animals besides a cookie. They could be a bear, a bunny – lots of possibilities here.

  2. I would rather eat a cupcake turkey any day over a real turkey.
