Vanilla Cupcakes

Usually I make some sort of dessert for Thanksgiving at my mother’s house. Last year, I made Turtle Cookies (which were super tasty) but this year I wanted to make something a little more decorative.

I came across this awesome video of Turkey Cupcakes from Kawaii Sweet World and decided to try them:

I won’t go into detail about the decorating part, but what I liked about her video was how nice her cupcake recipe was! It made the most perfect cupcakes, especially for decorating, with nice round tops. They did lean a little on the sweet side, but you could probably adjust the sugar if you want. Her video also comes with a frosting recipe, so click through if you want that too.


  • 1/2 cup butter, room temperature
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 eggs, room temperature
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 1/2 cups flour
  • 1 3/4 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 cup milk


  1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Cream together butter and sugar.
  3. Mix in one egg at a time.
  4. Add vanilla extract and stir to combine.
  5. In a separate bowl, whisk together flour and baking powder.
  6. Add half the dry ingredients to the butter mixture and combine.
  7. Add the milk and combine.
  8. Finish adding the dry ingredients and combine.
  9. Divide the batter between 12 cupcake liners.
  10. Bake for 20-22 minutes or until an inserted toothpick comes out clean.

Also, my own turkeys turned out pretty cute too!
