This awesome roast meal is the work of cake artist, Yolanda Gampp who is a master of faux food cakes (cake that looks like other food).

Here you are looking at the finished project. But let’s take it back to the beginning…


2

Stack layers of vanilla cake put sideways


3

Carve it into a turkey shape. Don’t forget the wings.


4

Perfect turkey form.


5

Drape with colored fondant icing.


6

Press with shelf liners (seriously) to get that turkey skin texture. Pro tip.


7

Paint on that roasted skin color look using ivory & copper and then later “Buckeye-Brown” food coloring gel.


8

9

Dust sporadically with cocoa powder. Especially the parts that get crispy in the oven


10

No turkey is complete without stuffing – poundcake stuffing!


11

Carve and serve!
