Happy Thanksgiving!

Happy Thanksgiving, everyone! I’m taking the day off to do some cooking, just as I imagine that many of you are. If you need some last minute tips or recipes, check out this post for a full listing of Thanksgiving mains, sides and desserts.

Speaking of desserts, the turkey pictured above is a Chocolate Maple-Glazed Turkey Cake that I made last year. This cake is made by “carving” a sheet cake into a turkey base, turkey leg and turkey wing, then sticking all the pieces together and pouring a smooth chocolate-maple glaze over them. If you’re not going to go with pie or something similar, this is a really fun dessert to trot out to a crowd. It seems to go over especially well if you have some vegetarian friends/family who might like to see a turkey alternative on the table – and wouldn’t just about everyone like a slice of cake as an alternative to the real bird, given the chance?

    Cute cake! Hope your Thanksgiving was great!

  • I thought this was such an interesting and creative way to make a Thanksgiving cake…in the shape of a turkey!

    The chocolate-maple glaze sounds delicious and worked perfectly for the color of the cake…

    How neat!
