Directions: Preheat oven according to cake mix directions. Butter and flour a 1½ qt. ovenproof bowl. Prepare cake mix and pour into bowl. Bake for 55 minutes until toothpick comes out clean. Cool in the bowl on a rack.
Remove from bowl and cool completely. Transfer ¼ cup of vanilla icing to a icing bag or sandwich bag with corner cut. Set aside. Spread remaining vanilla icing onto 10 Twinkies. Press a cylinder cookie into the center of each Twinkie. Place a red M&M above the tip of the cookie. Surround the remainder of the cookie with brown M&M's. Wrap a strand of licorice around the M&M's. To the outside of the licorice strand, place one ring of orange M&M's and a ring of yellow M&M's. Repeat with all Twinkies. These are the feathers. Invert cake to have flat side down onto surface. For the turkey's neck, use the remaining Twinkie and cut off ⅓ of the the Twinkie at an angle. Insert a toothpick into the top of the cake and using a small amount of chocolate icing, attach the cut side of the Twinkie piece over the toothpick. Using additional toothpicks, attach smaller leftover piece of Twinkie to the top side of the larger Twinkie to form head shape. Spread chocolate frosting over entire surface of cake. Spread the icing to form feather indentations. Attach 2 long gumdrops to head to form jowl, along with 1 small orange gumdrop to form beak. Add brown M&M for eye, attaching with the vanilla icing using pipe bag. Use 6 long orange gumdrops for toes at base of cake. Attach decorated Twinkies to the top edges of cake. Add additional chocolate cookies along feather rim and brown M&M's.
