Thanksgiving Cakes

Posted by on November 29, 2011

Well, Thanksgiving is over.  Now, with the glittering Christmas lights up and shopping outings planned, I am still feeling enormously thankful.

I thought I’d share my Thanksgiving cakes with you, because what’s the point of creating anything if you don’t share it, right? :)

I made the cake you see above first for the Thanksgiving dinner I hosted at my home, with just our family.  For the cake I just mixed a box of Spice Cake mix together with a small can of pumpkin.  Couldn’t be easier! And, without the eggs and oil and frosting, it’s really pretty healthy too! I made the feathers and turkey “parts” with colored fondant, just rolled out, cut, and layered. So easy I took “in process” photos and felt silly even adding them! When it was time to serve, I divvied up the fondant pieces to the kiddos and served the cake with Cool Whip. Delicious!  And, start to finish, it took less than an hour for everything.

For the Thanksgiving dinner the next day, I took a different spin on a turkey cake…

This cake also only took about an hour and a half start to finish.  I had made the Royal Icing flowers ahead of time, whipped up more pumpkin cake, and molded the turkey out of fondant. The fall tree is a chopstick wrapped in a tootsie roll with a food coloring painted rice crispie tree top.  I painted the eyes with a toothpick dipped in black food coloring.  The shortage of time made this a disappointing cake, but it tasted good and the kids had no qualms about diving into it. :)

Happy ThanksLIVING, today and always, from my family to yours.  I hope you feel blessed with everything SWEET life has to offer!  :)

Hugs, Casey
