I made this cake with the instructions that Mrs. Missey posted (Thank you so much) and here is what it looks like. Everyone was so impressed I am so excited because I have been getting compliments for the last few days and it feels great! icon_biggrin.gif
I made this for a friends pot luck dinner when she walked in with the cake the hostess asked her why did she bring another "turkey" and when she said it was a cake they couldn't stop talking about it. She had to take the knife to it because no one else would they said it was to pretty to cut. I thaught that was funny.

Thanks again to Mrs. Missey for the instructions.

My husband's birthday is tomorrow... Thanksgiving day! I started baking this cake yesterday! I did not find the egg pan, so a football pan will have to do the trick! anyway! my problem is that I do not understand how to attach the ice cream cones to the turkey!! Do I have to put some sticks in it? if so, then how? or is it wire of some sort? Please help... I will start decorating my birthday turkey tonite! any advice will help. icon_cry.gif

solidezca :
I didn't use anything to hold it together just frosting. I used sugar cones for the wings and cake cones for the drumsticks. I cut the sugar cone more on one side than the other and when I put it on the "wing" it just stayed the same for the drumstick. Here is a picture of how I cut the sugar cone.

I used a tan colored buttercream for to frost it once it crusted over some I mixed some warm water and brown paste color in a spray bottle and I sprayed this all over I let it set then I repeated this one more time once that was dry I mixed ( in another spray bottle) warm water, brown color paste and dark corn syrup and sprayed this all over I let it dry and repeated once more and thats how I got this color.

frstech & mahal:

Here is the link to where i found the instructions.

Hope this helps please let me know if you need anything else or if I missed anyones questions.

Wow! Yours looks great! For mine, I couldn't find an egg shaped pan, and my silly spray bottle wouldn't mist, so I had to dribble it on! LOL Good job!

Thanks to everyone for all your great comments you are all wonderful. I made 3 more cakes after this one and they came out the same way(heww, thank goodness).

I took one to my parents house my dad stopped me and said" another turkey? who brought that?" I told him "dad, this is a cake" he couldn't stop laughing because it really tricked him. I thought that was funny. it was great to see everyone so happy about one cake.

I use PhotoShop CS.
