Unusual Thanksgiving Cupcake Ideas

DSC05582

Thanksgiving is typically overlooked as a holiday for cupcakes in lieu of the two more accessible holidays it's sandwiched between. We've just covered Halloween, and the winter holidays are already peaking around the corner. But wait now, let's not let Thanksgiving just pass on by without due cupcake highlights!

Let me state that I love cute little turkey cupcakes as much as the next person, but sometimes my mind wanders into the even wilder possibilities of holiday themed cupcakes. Pictured above is a Stuffings and Mashed Potatoes "Cupcake" from The Ungourmet, who is also running a CrAzY CuPcAkE recipe challenge for anyone who's been itching to share his or her own unusual concoctions.

I'm a believer that any Thanksgiving pie can be pretty tasty in cupcake form as well-- i.e. sweet potato, chocolate pudding, pumpkin, so forth and so on. I'm game for trying a sweet potato cupcake recipe myself if I get around to it. What are your thoughts on incorporating cupcakes into a Thanksgiving meal?
