Sweet T.O.M. Turkeys

Their candy corn plumage and shortbread wings guarantee that these irresistible Treat of the Month Turkeys (T.O.M.s for short) will be gobbled up as soon as they land on the dessert table.

Ingredients:

For each T.O.M.
1 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)

Instructions:

Frost the cupcake, then press in a cookie head and 2 cookie wings.
Press in a row or two of candy corn tail feathers.
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.
To make a beak: Cut the white tip from a piece of candy corn (with just a bit of the orange) and press it in place.
To make the wattle: Cut a 1-inch square of fruit leather and roll it into a tube and stick it in place over the beak.
