Pilgrim Cupcakes Give You Something Else to be Thankful for This Year

— October 8, 2012 — Special
Aside from turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes, roasted ham, pumpkin pie and all those other mouth-watering foods you eat at Thanksgiving, it's a nice reminder that there are other things to be thankful for like these adorable pilgrim cupcakes.

Mounted on each cupcake is a little pilgrim boy and girl made with mini cupcakes, Reese's mini peanut butter cups, chocolate wafers, decorating gel and lots of icing. If there are any peanut allergies, simply replace them with caramel Rolos or even another mini cupcake. These pilgrim cupcakes are smothered in gooey icing and taste best when eaten immediately. There's so much sugar in this smiley snack that one should probably be limited to two to avoid any unnecessary sugar highs.
Trend Themes
1. Thanksgiving-themed Desserts - Developing unique and creative Thanksgiving-themed desserts can create opportunities for disruption and innovation in the baking industry.
2. Decorated Cupcakes - Creating intricate and eye-catching cupcake designs, such as the pilgrim boy and girl in this recipe, can draw customers and create new market opportunities for small bakeries or confectionery startups.
3. Alternative Ingredients - Replacing common ingredients with alternatives, such as caramel Rolos for those with peanut allergies, can attract customers with dietary restrictions and spark innovation in the dessert industry.
Industry Implications
1. Baking Industry - Incorporating unique and creative dessert designs, flavors, and ingredients can set businesses apart and create disruption in the baking industry, particularly around holidays like Thanksgiving.
2. Confectionery Startups - Developing innovative dessert creations using alternative ingredients or unique designs can attract customers and create exciting opportunities for small confectionery startups.
3. Dietary-restriction-friendly Desserts - Creating desserts that are free of common allergens or dietary restrictions, such as the peanut-free pilgrim cupcakes in this recipe, can create new market opportunities and disruptive innovation in the dessert industry.
