...as mentioned in the instructions, no dowels were used to attach the wings/legs, just icing! icon_biggrin.gif I did use the plastic hollow dowels, covered in icing, to get the look of the drumsticks and so that I would have a place to put the paper frills on the ends. HTH!!

to the CCers.. the only people who will NOT think i'm gory:

I have three entire turkey bodies in parts freezing in the freezer! (i found a mini egg pan for the drumsticks/wings). I tried the cupcakes for my first... and it came out pretty good BUT, i think the egg shapes of the mini egg pan will be much better. icon_smile.gif

are you guys using the mini egg pan with 8 1/2 eggs or 4 1/2 eggs? I'm thinking the 4 is bigger eggs but i'm not sure which one will be more proportioned with the body of the turkey. Thanks

I noticed there were two sizes as well... I was thinking the larger of the two was what MrsMissey suggested, but I'd sure like to hear it from the horses mouth (so to speak) before you buy something. I'd hate to be the reason you had problems!! icon_redface.gif

...as listed in the instructions, I used the 8 Mini Half Egg pan. It is the Wilton #2105-2118!

Oops, I was wrong in what I said, but the one I ordered was that model #. I think we all need to re-read the instructions before we ask more questions, I think she is having to repeat herself a lot. Sorry Mrs!!

I ordered the wrong mini egg pan. icon_sad.gif
I ended up using custard dishes to cook it in. It appears as if they will be the perfect size.

Anything from a cupcake to a large cake scrap will work! It's really very flexible, my instructions are just meant to be a guideline! thumbs_up.gif

Hiya guys,
I have an idea for the body of the turkey. How about using a regular round cake and cutting it in half, glue the two halves together with icing and just go from there. I made a miniature version from a 7" round cake and some cupcakes. Worked out really well. made little tomatoes and carrots too with some icing and piped on the "lettuce" with the large leaf tip.
