Beth Klosterboer of Hungry Happenings is a festive food maven. One look at her amazing Candy Corn-stuffed Thanksgiving Turkey Cake and we’ve completely forgotten about eating actual roast turkey. Who has time for dinner when dessert is as awesome as this?
The turkey is a layered, frosted yellow cake with wings and drumsticks hand-molded using a paste made of frosting and mashed cake. The impressively realistic stuffing is a combination of toasted cake cubes and crumbled bits of frosting/cake paste dusted with cocoa powder. And the veggie trimmings are made of fondant and modeling chocolate.

But wait, assuming you have any leftovers the day after Thanksgiving, you can create a whole new dessert by using slices of turkey cake to make turkey cake sandwiches. Om nom nom nom!
