Turkey Cupcakes You’ll Gobble Up!

In 4H this year, the oldest country kid has taken up a new project, cake decorating. He is so creative and really enjoys making cute cupcakes. This year for the fair, since he loves poultry too, he decided to make turkey cupcakes. And let me just say, I think they turned out totally adorable and they were so easy to make.

He started by making up a batch of chocolate cup cakes. If your not a from scratch person, it is totally fine to us a box mix. Once the cupcakes were cool (you don’t want your icing to slip around) he set to work with a pipping bag. He quickly realized his pipping skills still needed a lot of work, So being an 8 year old boy, he got frustrated and ditched the pipping bag for a regular old butter knife.

He gooped on the icing and made a pile for the head of the turkey. He then simply added two candy eyes to the head along with a candy corn for the beak. The tail was achieved with more candy corn. He also took some brown sprinkles and covered the body of the turkey to make it look like feathers. These bad boys were not labor intensive at all. With just a few well placed pieces of candy, I was impressed with how cute they turned out. The judges at the fair were too, because he got a blue ribbon. Not only did he get a ribbon at the fair, but a few months later, he was honored with a certificate from the 4H counsel for his new found and blossoming skills!!

Thanksgiving is right around the corner, and I bet your holiday guest would be blown away to see a flock of these award winning little cuties waiting to be devoured. And the best part is there is no tryptophan in these turkeys. While the consumption of too many might make your butt bigger, at least you will not fall asleep on the couch…. well at least until the sugar crash hits!
