This Turkey Takes the Cake
My kid's school threw their Fall Fair this past weekend, and I signed up to donate cakes and cupcakes for the cakewalk booth. I think they came out super cute and my kids were very excited to turn them in!
We made 2 dozen cupcakes and 2 turkey cakes
For the turkey cakes I used this mix I was given on my trip to NYC. It's two separate mixes that were the perfect amount for my Wilton bowl pan! The cakes came out moist yet sturdy enough to work with so I had no problem with it falling apart as I tried to ice it. If you love red velvet cake, you'll love this fall inspired version!
I used mini marshmallows for the eyes and drew on them with a food safe marker. For the beak and waddle I raided the kid's Halloween candy and molded starbursts after heating them in the microwave for a couple seconds.
For the feathered body, all you need to do is make rows of large dots of icing out of a piping bag and then press your spatula or spoon in the middle of the drop of icing and drag it down so it flattens it slightly. I'm sorry I didn't get a pic of that step, but I promise it's super easy!
The weather was awful, but the kids had fun through the freezing cold drizzle!
And, we were lucky enough to win two of the class raffle baskets!!
One basket full of board games and the Yeti cooler, which Louis is over the moon excited about
All packed up and ready to go!
