16 5″ Scrappy Precuts on ebay


1: Pipe frosting on outer edge of half of cookie (see my tips below).

2: Arrange candy corn over frosting for feathers.

3: Pipe orange icing onto each cookie to resemble turkey face and feet.

4: Use orange icing to attach baking bits to turkey face for eyes (see my tips below).

5: Pipe black gel on baking bits for centers of eyes (see my tips below).

Darlene’s Tips: Instead of using orange decorator icing, you can buy or make white frosting and tint it orange with food coloring (mix red and yellow). Use the orange frosting as the glue for the candy corn and also for the face and feet so you do not have to buy chocolate frosting too. For the eyes, use some of the white frosting to pipe on the eyes and add mini chocolate chips or cut pieces of shoestring black licorice for the pupils. Just use the picture as a guide and do whatever you want. Make one as a guide to show the kids then give them the rest as a fun Thanksgiving activity. Have fun with it!!
