One of my fondest memories growing up was the big holiday dinners my Mom served. The smells in our home are unforgettable. Over the years, I have tried to recreate those memories for our boys. Along with the turkey, stuffing and potatoes, dessert is always on the menu.  The familiar scents of AirWick’s “Good To Be Home” collection take me back to those younger years. The Frosted Vanilla and Cupcake Delight reminded me of the classic Vanilla Cupcakes that my Mom used to bake.

So to bring back memories and create some for my boys, I baked a batch of vanilla cupcakes and decorated them for Thanksgiving. As always, the cupcakes are easy and fun for the kids to decorate too! With just a few simple supplies, you and the kids can whip up a batch of these Thanksgiving Cupcakes to share with family and friends! You could also have the cupcakes frosted and place a cupcake at each child’s place setting along with the candy, cookie and bugles to decorate and let them decorate their own.

Let’s get started with the Pilgrim Hats…

Pilgrim Hats made from cookies and candy for Thanksgiving

As friends and family fill your home during this holiday season, so do the smells of home cooked food and dessert. The oven is warming up and ready for all the delicious dessert that is sure to be enjoyed.

    even better take a baggie and place cinnamon and sugar in it then take your bugles and lightly spray with PAM toss the bugles in the sugar mix, it gives it a darkened sweet flavor and appearance
