  1. Print on regular paper or cardstock and cut out all of the pieces. Do not cut along the dashed lines -- this is where you will fold the paper.
  2. With the design facing you, make all of the vertical folds in Mickey’s shorts away from you. Close the shorts by gluing tab A to the inside of the design.
  3. Fold the bottom of Mickey’s shorts outward, his feet down, and his tail up.
  4. Fold the top of the shorts like a box and tuck the tab inside.
  5. Fold the head in half and secure so the design is two-sided. Make sure the pieces are lined up evenly before the glue dries. Insert the neck into the top of the shorts where you folded the top closed.
  6. Fold the arms in half and secure so the design is two-sided. Do not get glue on the tabs on the ends of the arms. Fold those outward so you can use it as a base to attach the arms to Mickey’s shorts. Glue the arms to Mickey and your cutie is finished!

Their candy corn plumage and shortbread wings guarantee that these irresistible Treat of the Month Turkeys (T.O.M.s for short) will be gobbled up as soon as they land on the dessert table. Satisfy your sweet tooth with a gallery of even more Thanksgiving treat ideas.

What you'll need

  • Cupcake
  • 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)

How to make it

  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.
