Thanksgiving is only a few short days away. Have you decided what you are serving for dessert? How about a cake, topped off with an adorable little turkey?
Today, I will show you how to make one quite easily…
Make sure you subscribe to our Youtube channel to check out out latest video tutorials.
To make it, you will need the following supplies:
Brown modeling chocolate
Toothpick or wooden skewer (or you can even use a spaghetti strand)
Small leaf cutter
Small star cutter
Paintbrush and water
Black edible marker
And here are the steps:
Start off by rolling a small ball of modeling chocolate. Also, roll a slightly bigger ball of modeling chocolate.
Stick a toothpick or wooden skewer or even a spaghetti strand into the big ball.
Push the smaller ball on top.
Make sure it’s securely in place. And you have a turkey’s body.
Roll out some yellow fondant now and use a scalloped cutter to cut out a piece.
Also, use a star cutter to cut out 2 pieces.
Now, roll out some orange fondant and use a scalloped cutter to cut out a piece.
Roll out some red fondant and cut out another scalloped piece.
Brush some water on the base of the orange piece. Stick the red piece here.
Brush some water on the base on the red piece and stick the yellow piece here. These will be the turkey’s feathers.
Let’s assemble everything now… Brush some water on the star pieces. Place your turkey’s body on top and stick it into place.
Brush some water on the turkey’s backside and stick the feather piece here. Brush some water on the sides to make sure it sticks properly.
Bend the feathers back a little. And your turkey now has feathers.
Next, roll out little sausage shapes of red, orange and yellow fondant. Place them close together. And start rolling them together into a spiral
Roll them a few times again randomly.
Use a rolling pin to flatten this piece.
Use a leaf cutter to cut out 2 leaf shapes. These will be the turkey’s wings.
Brush some water on the sides of the body. And stick the wings here.
Now, draw eyeballs on 2 round sprinkles. These will be the turkey’s eyes.
Brush some water and stick them into place. And your turkey can see now.
To make the beak, flatten a small piece of yellow fondant. Use a knife to cut a small diamond shape. Fold it in half with the help of a knife.
Brush some water and stick it into place. Use a knife to help out.
To make the little red thing around a turkey’s beak, make a small sausage shape out of red fondant and stick it into place. Use a knife to help out.
And your turkey is ready!
You can even make a little pilgrim hat for your turkey, if you like.
Well, I hope you enjoyed this tutorial.
Happy caking everyone!
