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.

Step 1:

Picture of
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
walnuts
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 :)

Step 2: Color your buttercream.

You will need to separate your buttercream into 4 bowls. Using gel coloring dye one a light yellow, one a yam color (copper + a little brown) , one a a tannish color (ivory + a little brown), and leave one white. I didn't keep mine even because I knew I would use less yellow and white and more yam and tan.
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.
Thanks for the great recipe - Thanksgiving is often the forgotten holiday and needs Treats too.
