Follow the instructions on the Krusteaz box to make the cornbread mix. If you are using the hotdogs, be sure to cut them into thirds.
Spray theWilton non-stick pops baking pan with cooking spray and fill the hole in the pan with cornbread mix and place a hotdog or the turkey inside the middle of the mix. Bake following the instructions on the Krusteaz cornbread box. Once they are done, immediately place them upside down on a baking rack to cool.
While the corndogs are cooling, cut the Turkey feathers out of the construction paper. Next, cut a circle about 1 ½ inches wide for the turkey heads and then cut a beak out of the orange construction paper. Using the glue dots, place a feather onto the wooden skewer and then place another feather on the other side of the stick, be sure to leave a bit of the stick showing so that you can place it into the corn dog. Also, glue the beak to the brown circle and place it onto a wooden skewer and place it into the corn dog, you can also add wiggle eyes, or just paint eyes onto the turkey.
