This year’s Thanksgiving was such a great one for me.  Last year this time, I was biting my fingernails off in anxiety and excitement as my television debut dangled around the corner.  But this year, it was totally different…I was so happy to see Thanksgiving on my calendar and even more elated to make my first turkey cake for my family!!  Wouldn’t you believe it, when I made the big reveal to my extended family, they wouldn’t even cut the cake!!!!  As a cake designer, you learn to take that kind of reaction as a compliment!


The rolls were made out of cereal treats! The turkey was cake covered in fondant and the legs were made out of cereal treats. The stuffing was cake crumbs and the carrots, red potatoes and string beans were fondant.
