Roast Turkey Dinner Cake

roasted turkey dinner cake

This would be so stinkin’ cute for Thanksgiving!  My kids LOVE when I get creative with their meals and this would be a huge hit at any Thanksgiving party or gathering.

Turkey and dressing, mashed potatoes with gravy and peas… doesn’t sound much like dessert, does it? But it is! This adorable cake looks just like a roast turkey, and it comes complete with cupcake side dishes. It’s just the thing to lighten the mood around the holiday table, and it would make the funniest birthday cake for those celebrating in November. Here’s how to make it!
