Rated 2 out of 5 by from These are really cute, but a lot of us don't like eating people's faces. It's funny on Halloween, but it doesn't go over as well at Thanksgiving.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I used this design to top off my cupcakes for a charity bakesale during thanksgiving. I used fondant for the faces, and piping gel for the hair and eyes. I used a food coloring marker to make the eyes. You can use the piping gel for the eyes and mouth too but i thought the marker worked cleaner.
