It’s all about having fun – not perfect presentation or gourmet taste … as long as there’s sugar involved (lots and lots of sugar), these silly cooking projects we do keep us happy and help pass the time when J’s traveling.
Start with cupcakes prepared from a box mix (keep it simple!). Frost (yup, this is Duncan Hines frosting-in-a-tub), and decorate with cookies and candies.
M&Ms and Skittles (applied with frosting) for eyes
Slices of Starburst candies for the waddle
Candy corn for feathers
The possibilities are endless – if you can’t find Starburst, sliced red licorice will work for a waddle; if you can’t find candy corn, substitute wedges of lemon and orange jelly fruit slices.
These are “no rules” turkeys – OK, there are just a few rules:
- Have fun
- Get along with your siblings when you’re making the cupcakes
- Help clean up the kitchen when you’re done
