How to Decorate Turkey Cupcakes with Candy Corn
One of the things that we love the most about these cute turkey cupcakes is how easy they are to make. They are the perfect dessert to have the kids help with and they will love helping to decorate their own little turkey once the cupcakes are made! Everyone will be able to decide just exactly how they want their Thanksgiving turkey cupcake to look.
1. Cake Batter
Start by preparing your cupcake batter according to the box instructions. It doesn’t get much easier than that! Generally, you will just need to add eggs, milk and oil and you’ll be set!
2. Fill Cupcake Pan
If using cupcake liners, fill them 1/2 of the way full with the prepared cupcake batter. If you’re really feeling fancy, feel free to get some fun Thanksgiving cupcake liners to make your sweet turkey cupcakes even more festive!
3. Bake Cupcakes
Bake the cupcakes according to the box instructions. I typically only bake mine for about 15 minutes, rather than the recommended 19 minutes. But it will depend on elevation and where you live. Pay close attention and you’ll be just fine!
4. Let Cool
After the special Thanksgiving cupcakes are finished baking, let them cool completely before attempting to frost them.
5. Frost The Cupcakes
If you decide to use an icing pipping kit, now is the time where you will want to fill your icing bag with the chocolate icing. If you don’t use the pipping kit, it is completely fine, just decide how you will frost the cupcakes.
Typically, I start in the middle of the cupcake and just add one large dot of icing onto each cupcake. I do use the icing pipping kit, however, to make this a little easier.
