"turkey" cupcakes supercute! ♥

here's a supercute idea for guests on thanksgiving, faux turkey cupcakes!

these are great for the little something extra for your dinner guests! enjoy! :)

bake the cupcakes to standard directions on the back of the mix.
The construction of the turkey cupcakes was quite involved and you have to use tons of ingredients to construct them like – caramels, food coloring, grape nuts, sprinkles, corn flakes and frosting! It was impossible to document all of the steps because most of the time my hands were covered in something sticky –
One of the first steps you have to do is cover the corn flakes with green frosting because they get stuck underneath the turkey and end up looking like lettuce.

 green goo~!

Coated cornflakes - they took forever to dry - over an hour!

They next big step is prepping all of the caramels.  You have to unwrap them, figure out how long to nuke them in the microwave  so 1 had to do it for about 10 seconds, then you roll them out, cut them into certain shapes and assemble~

Caramels - the entire turkey is constructed out of them! 
This is a turkey body - looks easy, but not so much!

Aren't the legs supercute!?
Now it is time to assemble the cupcakes............

You have to put a big dollop of icing on the top because the turkey body lays directly on it.

Now here's the turkey with some green frosting at the bottom - this is where you stick the cornflakes. The white icing is where you stick the stuffing...Grapenuts/sprinkles dyed green.
supercute!!!!! enjoy them!
