Thanksgiving Turkey

 Thanksgiving Turkey  on Cake Central

I made this for Thanksgiving. Inspired by the Wilton project called "Gobble It Up" on their website. It is a strawberry pound cake with buttercream icing. The pan used was the 3D Rubber Ducky. The feathers are chocolate candy melts. The shapes came from a leaf mold.

I didn't really have any problems and it has been a year since I made. I will do my best to remember. I made the chocolate leaves thinner than the mold. I attached lollipop sticks to some of them and inserted into the back. Some of the smaller ones are just inserted into the icing without a stick. I maybe used 7 sticks. Also, I used a pound cake. I don't know if that matters.

I tried to do one of these cakes last year, and the "feathers" made my turkeys back side fall right off. Fortunately, it was just my family and my dad thought it was kind of funny. How did you get the feathers to stay?
