Turkey Cupcakes

What are you baking for Thanksgiving? Pumpkin pies? Apple crisp? How about turkey cupcakes? Actually, double chocolate cupcakes, but they look like turkeys!

Gobble, gobble.


These cute Thanksgiving cupcakes are a big hit at my family’s dinner every year. I love the thick ganache frosting as the “body” of the turkey and the sugar pearls/dragees for the eyes.


I always pipe 2-3 times as many “feathers” as I need because I know they’ll break when I set them into the cupcake. The piped chocolate is pretty fragile.


Happy Thanksgiving!
