Does anyone have any ideas about doing a fun Thanksgiving Day Cake for kids?....customer wants chocolate cake with chocolate ganache icing....any ideas what to put on top?...She left the rest up to me for whatever I want to do...I can use gummy worms, candy corn, oreo cookies....whatever I need...
The cake in my avatar was fashioned after a children's coloring book page. Chocolate cake with chocolate icing and a few easy fondant accents. It was actually a birthday cake for a girl born on Thanksgiving Day.
Round cake with a half ball cake on top carved just a little to shape the head.
The feathers were painted on a flat sheet of dried gumpaste cut to look like feathers.
I went looking for Indian corn cupcakes like these: http://catyscupcakes.blogspot.com/2010/09/indian-corn.html and found these candy corn cupcakes which I like even more! http://sugarturntable.com/?p=1401 I think it should work as a round cake with a circular trench dug for the filling.
Awesome idea, especially for a cake. I've got a couple birthday cakes to make around Thanksgiving time, I'm definitely doing this for one of them. Thanks for sharing!
