Turkey Cupcake Tutorial and a Werther's Original Caramel Package Giveaway.

posted on: Saturday, November 20, 2010


Go ahead and say it.
My turkey cupcake rocks.

I could never come up with something so elaborate, specially for cupcakes.  Cupcakes are the new thongs and to be honest with you I don't really even like thongs, so it's hard for me to understand what the whole cupcake craze is all about.  Last week, though, I did go to a cupcake decorating class and I was all like "oh, I get it"

They're fun to decorate if nothing else.

For this cupcake you're going to need caramels, lots and lots of caramels. Maybe not lots and and lots but enough to make your turkey and enough to eat while you're making the turkey. Here is where Werther's original comes in.

These guys (and gals) make the best caramel in the world, unless you make the best caramel in the world in which case send me some! Werther's sent our family a package of  caramels and caramel chocolate and chewey caramels and then some more caramel in the mail and they're going to send a similar package to a Kitchen Corners' reader.  Basically what you're going to want to do is eat all the caramel chocolate before anyone else in your family finds it. Then you're going to save the hard caramels for special ocassions and then you're going to bust out the chewey caramels to make turkey cupcakes, of course.


Heat up a couple chewey caramels for 5 seconds in the microwave. Now that it's soft you can play with it. Roll it out and into circle shapes. Then cut a foot ball shape out of each circle. That's what you're going to use to make the body of the Turkey. Use two small balls of the soft caramel and pretzel sticks to mold  the drumsticks. Place the drumsticks on there with a little bit of water. Then decorate the sides with candy so that it looks like a turkey dinner. The stuffing is frozen pound cake chopped up into tiny squares.

Seriously, it's pretty easy.

By the time this giveaway is over Thanksgiving will be a memory. I'm sure you'll be able to come up with some Christmas cupcake though using soft caramels and a ridiculous amount of frosting.

Have a fun weekend.
See you back here on Monday where I'll announce the cook off winner.
xoxo

  7. I am a follower. Great giveaway. The cupcakes look great. I was reading my friends status on FB the other day and it said something like finished the turkey cupcakes, and at 7 am in the morning, I seriously thought that meant cupcakes made out of ground turkey, but then I saw a picture and it made way more sense. I did not realize these turkey cupcakes were so popular this year.

  10. What a cute cupcake idea! I love that the stuffing is pound cake (and I'm wondering if using pound cake would work for actual stuffing). And I'm most definitely a follower.
