all I have is the ball pan. Can I make that work!!!???? then it won't look turkeyish!
it'll look more like a chicken!!
Plz help with ideas!!! none of the stores have the egg pan out this time of yr!!
I didnt use a shaped pan at all. I used two 1/2 sheets and cut them in half and stacked...then I carved. Its not a very hard shape and this way it was the size of a 17 - to 20 lb turkey so it looked really realistic. Its in my photos if that helps.
I'm facing the same issue this week. I'm planning to use a BC "Bake & Fill" pan (similar to the ball pan) and then carve it. Good luck with yours.
momma - thanks for the tip.
I used the oval pans for mine, with no bake even strips so it cooked with a hump.
I used a ball pan for my turkey cake delivered this morning. It's in my photos. It was not an easy bird but that was not because of the shape of the pan. I did cut some off the rear of the turkey so my feathers would have a better chance of sticking. Good luck!
If you are talking about the body of a roasted turkey and are hesitant to carve, you can use the football pan and just round the ends. Michaels and AC Moore here have the football pans right now.
