The Thanksgiving Turkey Cake

Jill Harness

While we're still years away from housing an entire meal inside of a gumball, a la Willy Wonka, a recent Chow article shows just how to incorporate a whole Thanksgiving meal into one cake.

If you thought the picture above looked a little strange, just wait until you learn what the layers are made of. The first is a sort of turkey loaf, topped with a mashed potato filling and a quick spread of cranberry sauce. The next layer is made of stuffing shoved on top of the cranberry sauce, which is then covered with another layer of potatoes. Another layer of turkey loaf is then added and then the cake is baked for about a half an hour before the mashed potato frosting is applied, topped with a coating of sweet potatoes followed by marshmallows.

If you're looking for a good prank to pull on your family this Thanksgiving, a turkey cake is a good way to go. Of course, if you hate wasting food that no one will eat, this is probably something that should be avoided at all costs.
