* 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)


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.
