Thanksgiving Cupcakes!

So... I know that I blogged about Christmas the other day- but don't worry! I haven't forgotten about Thanksgiving. Here are some adorable cupcakes to brighten your Turkey day!

Start by baking any flavor cupcakes (I LOVE lemon!!).

While those are cooking, grab some coconut flakes, and brown them in a pan. This is a bad example picture, I have WAY too much in the pan...which I learned the hard way. =)

After your cupcakes are cooled, frost them - and top them with a Toasted Coconut Marshmallow (they come in that flavor!!). Wet a toothpick, and poke two small holes for eyes (chocolate sprinkles) and a bigger hole for the beak (a swedish fish!)

Next, sprinkle with your toasted coconut!

Add either AquaLife swedish fish or candy corn for tail feathers. SO easy, and just too darn cute!



  1. Stopping by from SITS, hello!

    I'm going to direct my best friend to your blog (if she hasn't already spied it). because she loves cupcakes and is always on the search for one to showcase on her blog. She'll love these! They're completely adorable.

    Have a great day :)
