If your looking for something sweet to take to Thanksgiving that isn't a pie...I've got something fun for you! Why not bring Thanksgiving dinner for dessert? Cupcake style of course! These cupcakes will have everybody giggling and cause total brain confusion at the Thanksgiving table. They are SO much fun! Each one is made completely of sweet treats but looks just like some of Thanksgiving staples.

I promise they are not as complicated as they look! I have broken them down by each "food" so you can see how I really made these.

If you would like to see my blog post about these check it out here:http://makebakecelebrate.blogspot.com/2012/11/thanksgiving-dinner-cupcakes.html

Step 1:

To make these cupcakes the main items your going to need are:
12 cupcakes + one extra for decoration ( I recommend pumpkin ones for color) / recipe here -
5 cups of decorators buttercream / recipe here 
small box of fondant
yellow, copper, green, and ivory coloring
caramel syrup
marshmallow bits
black and white sanding sugar

The tools  you will need:
Rolling pin
ice cream scoop
square cutter
pipping bag with large round tip
small bone cookie cutter (optional)

Remember to be flexible! It's ok if you don't have one of the small decorations or a certain tool. Look around your kitchen for something else that would get the job done :)
<p>My buttercream evidently wasn't as firm as yours. It just would not support the turkey bone. So I only made one of those. I ended up really pushed for time, which is why the mashed potato and gravy cupcakes are the most abundant, they are hands down the simplest design. In fact, if you're pushed for time and still want variety, that and the bean casserole were the easiest/quickest. Anyway, these were a total hit! So WOOOO! =D Thanks very much for the instructable.</p>
These are great - I did them and am very happy with the results. I used green fruit rollups for the beans and yellow for butter and corn. My 'tan' got a little darker than I wanted but oh well - that's life. <br>Thanks for the great recipe - Thanksgiving is often the forgotten holiday and needs Treats too.
These are amazing... I may try this one for my students on Tuesday night. <br>
