Turkey Tom Cupcakes

Ingredients

Directions

  1. Line a baking sheet with waxed paper; set aside. Spread half of the Chocolate Butter Frosting onto Pumpkin Cupcakes. In a microwave-safe bowl microwave 1/2 cup of the chocolate frosting on 100 percent power (high) for 10 to 20 seconds or until mixture has thinned, stirring every 5 seconds. Stick toothpicks into uncut tops of marshmallow halves. Dip marshmallow halves into melted frosting, turning to coat; let excess drip off into bowl. (If frosting thickens, microwave for a few seconds more.) Place marshmallows, pick ends up, on prepared baking sheet. Carefully remove picks. Let stand until set.
  2. Cut a small slit in the center of each marshmallow half. For beak, insert a candy corn into each slit, with pointed end sticking out. Using decorating gel, carefully pipe a turkey wattle up and over each beak. Place a coated marshmallow half slightly off-center on each frosted cupcake. For feathers, break wafers into pieces; insert pieces into each cupcake in a half circle around the marshmallow head.
  3. Place Creamy White Frosting in a heavy resealable plastic bag; seal. Snip a small piece from one corner. Pipe small rounds on the marshmallows for eyes. Press a miniature chocolate piece into each white round. Place remaining chocolate frosting in a pastry bag fitted with a star tip. Pipe chocolate frosting around the edges of marshmallow heads. For the feet, press two gumdrop halves below the head on each of the cupcakes.
  4. Place the remaining 1/4 cup white frosting in a second heavy resealable plastic bag; seal. Snip a small piece from one corner. Pipe small rounds on the marshmallows for eyes. Press a miniature chocolate piece into each white round. Place remaining brown frosting in a pastry bag fitted with a star tip. Pipe chocolate frosting around the edges of marshmallow pieces. Makes 12 (2-1/2 inch) cupcakes.

From the Test Kitchen

*Test Kitchen Tip:

If you prefer, tint about 1/2 cup white frosting with red food coloring and use to pipe wattles.
