Savvy Cooking: Edible Thanksgiving Name Cards

If you're looking for a fun way to spice up your Thanksgiving tablescape try these adorable edible Cornucopia name cards from!  They are so easy to make and an absolute delight for your guests!


  • Sugar Cones

  • Runts, Candy Corns or other small fruit shaped candies

  • Ribbon

  • Decorator Icing (Or melted chocolate chips poured in a Ziploc baggie - just cut off the tip of the bag and squeeze out melted chocolate for a homemade decorator bag!)


Using decorator icing or melted chocolate as glue, attach one end of a strip of ribbon around the sugar cone by placing a drop of icing on the cone and laying the ribbon on top of the icing.  Wrap the ribbon around the cone, add another dab of icing overlap the ribbon and press ribbon firmly.  Attach a candy corn with another dab of icing.  Write your guest's name on the sugar cone with icing or chocolate and allow to dry.  Fill cone with fruit shaped candies and enjoy.

    If you opt for the melted chocolate chips route here's what to do:

    Put 5-6 oz of chocolate chips (half a bag) in a microwave safe bowl.  Set the microwave at 50% power.  Cook for 40 seconds and then stir well.  Repeat with 30 second intervals until melted.

    1. Thanks for the great idea and I like that you don't have to make it all when things are so busy getting ready for the big day

    2. my mom used to do something similar but she would put the end of the cone in a tea pot to soften it and then curl the end and let it dry. that way the end of the cornucopia curls up
