Tips to Make Thanksgiving Cupcakes
- Definitely start this thanksgiving dessert with your favorite vanilla cupcakes. I always start with my Lazy Girl Cupcakes. They’re a simple, no-fail recipe that anyone can make, as long as you can follow instructions.
- I used candy corn shaped marshmallows that I got here. But you could use regular candy corn. I just didn’t have any on hand. Either will look great and taste even better! LOL!
- Let the kids take the lead, seriously. They’ll have a blast. They can put the icing on with the decorating bag–and if you’re afraid of it squirting out the back, you can secure it with a rubber band. No excuses. Have fun.
How Do I Make Turkey Cupcakes?
I’m so glad you asked. Below is our written tutorial.
