Once upon a time, my kids LOVED pumpkin pie. Now, they love cupcakes.
So while there will now be extra pumpkin pie for me to devour this Thanksgiving, there will also be lots of little cupcakes for me the kids to enjoy for dessert too.
They are really easy to make.
- basic vanilla cupcakes
- chocolate frosting
- decorator icing - black, red, and white
- fondant - with color gels.
Simply pipe a little chocolate frosting onto the top of the cupcake.
Use a couple of different leaves or teardrop shaped fondant or cookie cutters to cut the feathers and face out of fondant once you've colored it.
Use small decorator icing tubes to create the facial features.
