Easy Tepee Cupcakes (or place card holders) for Thanksgiving!

Happy Veterans Day!
Thank you, Lord for our Veterans.

This past weekend I made some
really fun cupcakes for Thanksgiving.
The first style I would like to share is this

My inspiration came from these edible crafts
that you can see by clicking HERE!

I just adapted them, CUPCAKE STYLE!

How fun are these?

I used sugar cones and cut the top off
and using chocolate frosting as glue placed in the cut
pretzel sticks on the top.

Then I used the canned chocolate
frosting to pipe on the stripes with a #4 wilton tip.

Using mini M&M's, I decorated the Tepee's
with ornamental flair.

After piping the frosting on top of my
cupcake I placed the Tepee on it's sacred spot!

These would also work as place card holders
if you were smart enough to place your pretzels
in a manner to accommodate a place card! 

Now that is CLEVER!!

I look forward to sharing more fun
Thanksgiving treats soon!!

These are adorable and I love that they are edible, what a bonus. You could fit the place cards between the three pretzels couldn't you?

Much love and continued prayers.
