Turkey Cupcakes

I saw this on the Today Show and thought they were really cute!

Turkey Cupcakes

Packaged cookies, candy corn and a little frosting are the key to creating fun turkeys to top a cupcake. If you put the pupils down low on your marshmallow eyes, your turkey will look appropriately worried as any turkey would before he’s about to be eaten!

Get the recipe at       iVillage

I never realized the cute desserts you can make with Nutter Butter Cookies.  My Ghost Cookies were a big hit and I have enough leftover to make these!  
What are you making for Thanksgiving?

Mr. Munchy Crunchy Gets a Face Lift!

I've had quite a few people ask me to create a seasonal Mr. Munchy Crunchy. Mr. Munchy Crunchy is very hungry and loves to eat beginning sounds!   Over the years, Mr. Munchy Crunchy has had quite a few different looks, but it has been awhile since I've created a new look.
After spending the day with my trusty glue gun, I came up with 4 new looks:

Scarecrow Mr. Munchy Crunchy

Hoot! Hoot! Mr. Munchy Crunchy

Mr. Gobble Gobble Munchy Crunchy

Mr. Rudolph Munchy Crunchy

Sooooooo - what do you think?  
Any ideas for future Mr. Munchy Crunchies?  
Maybe a snowman or penguin?  
Leave a comment (just click on the link at the end of this post that says comments)  and let me know what you think.
