Turkey Cupcakes

I love all of the fun ideas for holidays that you can find online, this one I found on my new favorite site Betty Crocker, this one is adorable, and would make a great table decoration for Thanksgiving!

1box Betty Crocker® SuperMoist® devil's food cake mix

Water, vegetable oil and eggs called for on cake mix box
2containers (1 lb each) Betty Crocker® Rich & Creamy milk chocolate frosting
1tube (4.25 oz) Betty Crocker® white decorating icing
1tube (0.68 oz) Betty Crocker® brown decorating gel

Candy corn

Chocolate candy sprinkles
1.Heat oven to 350°F (325°F for dark or nonstick pans). Make and cool cake as directed on box for 24 cupcakes.
2.Frost cupcakes with frosting. Place remaining frosting in corner of resealable freezer plastic bag. Snip off small corner of bag.
3.To decorate each cupcake, pipe 1-inch mound of frosting on 1 side of cupcake to look like head of turkey. Make eyes with white decorating icing and brown decorating gel; add candy corn for beak. To make feathers, pipe frosting on opposite side to hold candy corn; place candy corn upright on frosting to look like feathers. Sprinkle chocolate candy sprinkles near head and at base of feathers. If desired, add candy corn at base of cupcake for feet. Store loosely covered.
