Given you now have only three full days left to prepare it is time to turn those ovens on! You know that you are going to be CRAZY on Thursday so in order to ease the pressure why not bake a range of fun cupcakes for dessert instead of stressing over the pumpkin pie on the day?
In addition given you can make your cupcakes out of all those traditional thanksgiving foods such as pumpkin, sweet potato and apple, there is no reason why you shouldn’t create a Thanksgiving Cupcake bar! Plus your kids will think it is fantastic and will probably even offer to help you with the decorating and the cleaning (well, at least the cleaning of the beaters and cleaning of the bowl parts!).
Firstly I have cupcake pops. Bakerella’s new book has put cupcake pops on top, and what child could refuse these frosting covered cute turkeys? They have been created by Sue and Darlene of the Cupcake Project.
Next is a fantastic cupcake turkey cake. I love this, how much fun would it be and this one from Cupcakes A Go Go is brilliant. I am guessing that there are about 22-24 large cupcakes included in this creation!
Finally I just adore this little guy, isn’t he cute?? Mary MacAskill made this turkey using a marshmallow for the head and shredded coconut as feathers. A beak and tail out of gummies and what could be more sweet!
