We have a whole arsenal of grown up and sophisticated desserts that are perfect for even the most discerning palatte, but since there’s still usually a kid (or one at heart) at our Thanksgiving dinner tables, we can’t help but make something silly once in awhile—like these super easy turkey cupcakes.

1 / 5

These cupcakes can be made from any cupcake or cake recipe you so desire. Try out a red velvet if you’re going for gruesome or maybe add in a filling (nothing says Happy Thanksgiving like a stuffed turkey right?) a plain white or chocolate recipe will suffice. You’ll need a chocolate frosting, a very small amount of white (we hit up the grocery store and bought a mini tube of already prepared), candy corn and chocolate sprinkles.

Although they look time consuming, we made over 50 of them in just under a half hour (not including bake time), just do 1 step to all the cupcakes before moving on. You can check out the application process in our amazing illustration above to see how they all came together. Enjoy!
