What you'll need

  • Cupcake
  • Chocolate frosting
  • 3 oval shortbread cookies (we used Keebler Sandies Right Bites Shortbread)
  • 6 to 10 candy corn pieces
  • White icing
  • Black decorators' gel
  • Red fruit leather (we used strawberry Fruit by the Foot)

How to make it

  1. Frost the cupcake, then press in a cookie head and 2 cookie wings.

  2. Press in a row or two of candy corn tail feathers.

  3. To make an eye, add a small dot of white icing to the head, then add a dot of black decorators' gel for a pupil.

  4. For a beak, cut the white tip from a piece of candy corn and press it in place.

  5. To make the wattle, cut a 1-inch square of fruit leather. Roll it into a tube and stick it in place over the beak.
