I have a standing order each year for a Thanksgiving cake--carrot cake, by the way. It's coming up fast and I'm running out of ideas. In the past I've done a "roast turkey", cornucopia, pilgrim hat, "mashed potatoes", "pie", a few autumn-y themed cakes, just to name a few. Any clever Thanksgiving cake ideas out there?

how about a mayflower ship? or a bundle of indian corn? maybe something that looks like a casserole dish of green bean casserole? LOL I think that would be funny. icon_smile.gif

This is one that I did last year. I know you said you did a turkey but maybe you can use the "side dishes" in the pic . I got the ideas from a book called Hello, Cupcake. My corn on the cob is different than the book though because I wanted mine to look realistic. (The one in the book uses several cupcakes. I carved cake in the shape of corn on the cob, buttercreamed and then applied the Jelly Bellys) I have a full description of everything under my pic but if you have any ?'s I'll be glad to help! thumbs_up.gif

I'll have to search through my pics and see if I can find a close up pic of the side dishes.

When you click on the photobucket link(s) in Sherry's post click on the link at the top of that page and it takes you to over 14 more pages of Thanksgiving cakes - one of which I have included here:
