Happy Turkey Day

I saw a picture online of a cake made to look like a turkey and I had to try it out! I made a 1/4 sheetcake and stacked it 4 tall. I tried to carve the shape of the turkey with a knife. I used fondant to mold the legs and wings and then frosted it all with buttercream tinted light brown. I then sprayed the entire cake with orange and yellow to give it the toasted look. I used some of the cake I had carved off and cut it into little chunks and put at the "open" end of the turkey to look like stuffing. It was definitely a hit at Thanksgiving. Most people thought it was another turkey :)
