Turkey in the Straw Cupcakes from Sugartown Sweets

Turkey in the Straw 1This recipe for these adorable “Turkey in the Straw” cupcakes was originally posted by Karen on her blog, Sugartown Sweets. She so generously allowed us to include this recipe in the holiday issue of the Ruby for Women magazine, and I thought it would be fun to post it here, too, for the Christmas Cookie Swap Linky Party at Katherine’s Corner.

I’ll be posting a few other holiday recipes in the coming weeks, but just had to share this one with you for the linky party! I hope you can join us for the Christmas Cookie Swap Linky Party  ;o)
