All you need is a basic cupcake, a little icing and some fun fondant colors to make these sweet turkey cupcakes for your Thanksgiving parties.

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.

Turkey cupcakes for Thanksgiving

I was inspired by both the pinecone turkeys the kids made and also these little cupcakes I made many years ago for one of Jay’s school celebrations.

They are really easy to make.

All you need is:

  • 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.
