Snappers Turkey Cupcake Toppers

November 03, 2015

Looking for something to keep the kids occupied while preparing Thanksgiving dinner? Let them make their own turkey while you cook yours. Our test kitchen had a lot of fun experimenting and found that our caramel or peanut butter pretzel clusters make for perfect plumage!  Dress up store bought cupcakes in minutes or add some fun to cupcakes made at home.


  • Snappers® Prepared cupcakes
  • Candy corn
  • Candy eyes
  • Nonpareils
  • Icing


  1. Using icing, attach a nonpareil (or chocolate disk) to one Snappers® cluster.
  2. Break off the large section of a single piece of candy corn.
  3. Attach candy corn beak and candy eyes to nonpareil using icing.
  4. Make sure to give the icing time to dry completely.
  5. Once the icing is set, place the Snappers® turkey on top of a prepared cupcake.
  6. For the tail, push several candy corn pieces into icing around the edge of the Snappers® piece into a fan pattern.
  7. Watch the Turkeys come to life!
