Hello, I'm very new to decorating and I've been asked to make a thanksgiving day cake. I have no idea what to do. Does anybody have easy Thanksgiving day designs they can share? Thanks

This was our very first cake for a client. We used a simple design: leaves, pumpkins and little flowers. Feel free to use it!

BarbieK17 -- "new to decorating" using buttercream or fondant?  Here's an early buttercream design that looks very impressive.  I learned this in a class with Kathleen Lange and prepared a short tutorial with her permission that is posted on my shutterfly site.  When you go to the link you will see thumbnail photos.  When you click on each thumbnail, it will enlarge.  BE SURE to scroll down slightly to see the written instructions below each photo (sometimes the writing doesn't appear in a screen shot):

Cornucopia (Horn o' Plenty) Cake, Tutorial


Here's another one done for a neighbor using buttercream and chocolate dipped strawberries that look like candy corn


And here's another one done with the 1M or 2D tip.  It is super easy and very impressive.  Look at the orange ombre cake in the trio of halloween cakes:


Haven't had any luck posting photos recently, so you'll need to go to the links to see the cakes.  If any of these strike your fancy and you have questions, send me a PM or ask on this thread.

I use both buttercream and fondant, I also decorate using whipped cream. Most of my customers dislike buttercream so I try the best I can with whipped cream. Thanks for your pics, they are very inspiring. I now have an idea of what I can do.
