My creation is called Thanksgiving in a Cupcake. When I think of fall Thanksgiving immediately comes to my mind, along with some of the foods (pumpkin, stuffed turkey, and pumpkin pie) that are a staple at the table. The cupcakes are vanilla cupcakes with buttercream frosting. Each aspect of these cupcakes has a meaning. The silver liners of the cupcake represent the foil that is widely used on Thanksgiving. The color of the frosting is the color that reminds me of fall and the fondant toppers are the food items.
- The pumpkin is a well known symbol for Fall so I created them to look as realistic as possible.
- The stuffed Turkey was very important for me to create because that's one of the first things that is cooked for Thanksgiving. I started out with ivory fondant to create the Turkey and then I took different color pieces of fondant to act as the stuffing and put it on a plate. I then dusted the Turkey with brown color dust to give it that crisp look. I would like to thank my husband for helping in recreating this topper.
- One of my favorite pies for Thanksgiving, besides pecan pie, is pumpkin pie. I love all of the flavors that are in this pie. The shell is ivory fondant, while the pie is a light brown fondant. I then took some white fondant and made it into whipped cream, which is the best.
