Beth Klosterboer of Hungry Happenings is a festive food maven. One look at her amazing Candy Corn-stuffed Thanksgiving Turkey Cake and we’ve completely forgotten about eating actual roast turkey. Who has time for dinner when dessert is as awesome as this?

The turkey is a layered, frosted yellow cake with wings and drumsticks hand-molded using a paste made of frosting and mashed cake. The impressively realistic stuffing is a combination of toasted cake cubes and crumbled bits of frosting/cake paste dusted with cocoa powder. And the veggie trimmings are made of fondant and modeling chocolate.

Click here for the complete recipe and step-by-step instructions.

But wait, assuming you have any leftovers the day after Thanksgiving, you can create a whole new dessert by using slices of turkey cake to make turkey cake sandwiches. Om nom nom nom!

EyelashJewelry is an Etsy shop run by a woman named Natalie who handmakes, you guessed it, jewelry for your eyelashes:

Eyelash jewelry is made by hand-weaving tiny glass beads onto ultra thin wire. This creates a light-weight, flexible band that can be formed to the shape of any eye. Simply bend the jewelry into the proper shape, apply a thin layer of adhesive, and press it directly above your eyelashes.”

Here you see Unicorns, Candy Corn, wee bitty Baby Farm Animals, and ”Salad Days” (garden vegetables and feathers) eyelash adornments. Head over to EyelashJewelry to view many more.

Kyle Hepworth of Something a week came up with an awesome recipe for Candy Corn on the Cob

"I don’t really like loose corn. I really like corn-on-the-cob. And I like candy corn, so it follows that I would probably love candy-corn-on-the-cob. Unfortunately, I’ve never seen candy-corn-on-the-cob. So I must make it."

His reasoning is sound. We highly recommend visiting Kyle’s blog to read about his step-by-step trial and error process that ultimately led to the delicious creation you see here. Yet another reason to love candy corn!
