Place a cookie head onto the cupcake and press in a row or two of candy corn tail feathers.
To make an eye, add a small dot of white icing to the head, then add a mini chocolate chip for a pupil.
For a beak, break the white tip from a piece of candy corn and press it in place.
You can make the wattle by cutting a 1/4-inch strip of fruit chew. Roll the piece to soften it and stick it in place over the beak.
