Thanksgiving Turkey Cupcakes – A Super Easy DIY

Are you in full fledged maniac mode getting ready for Thanksgiving?  Good, me too! If you are looking for a really easy and cute dessert idea, I’ve got you.  I made Thanksgiving Turkey cupcakes and they are awesome to behold. And to eat.  I always have pies for Thanksgiving, but kids don’t really love pie.  At least not as much as cupcakes.  So, this year, my lucky child guests are getting Thanksgiving Turkey Cupcakes!
