This turkey cake is my favorite recipe again – Hershey’s ultimate choc (recipe on back of cocoa box) since it holds up well to sculpting.

I used a basic sheet cake pan and cut out the curves for the feathers and then used 2 different sized Pyrex bowls for the head and belly.

For the feathers, I just mixed a few different colors of the buttercream frosting and tried to overlap them a little to look more authentic.

The beak is a square of caramel that I molded into a beak shape. The eyes are peanut M&M’s that I put gel icing in the center for the pupil and covered the top and bottom with buttercream so it wouldn’t be bug-eyed.

Feet are just icing.
