Unfortunately for us all, turkey cakes are a thing.
I guess I can live with this, but why - WHY - do bakers have to add the stuffing? "Ahh, the ol' 'Fido's head exploded' design. Nice!   But can we add a few blood stains?" "PERFECT."   "Now how about some moldy green bits? And can we make the turkey into a dirty paper bag?" "PERFECTER."   "Next, throw in a weird body cavity that makes everyone vaguely uncomfortable..." "Oooh, and is that dog food in there? I LIKE. Give me more. MORE!!" "Yes, yes, yes! AHAHAHAA!!!"   "But now...Read more http://www.cakewrecks.com/home/2014/11/26/oh-stuff-it.html

Just like fashion, you can accessorize any cake with a stylish pattern.  Cake patterns help set the mood for parties, highlight themes, add accents to layers, or even reflect your own personality.  Here at Pink Cake Box, we love adding patterns to cakes, or replicating a special pattern for our customers.  Take a look at some of our top cake pattern choices from weddings, birthdays, showers and more! Chevron One of the most popular cake pattern choices is chevron .  Chevron is reminiscent of an art deco style and was a popular look in the 1920’s (think “Great Gatsby!”).  But...Read more http://blog.pinkcakebox.com/top-cake-pattern-choices-pink-cake-box-2014-11-25.htm

I love this simple technique and I use it very very often. Furthermore it is a good way to use tiny bits or left over of fondant coming from the cake you just finished to cover. Put all your bits together, knead them slightly until the colours start to fuse. Use your rolling pin to smooth out the fondant, depending to the direction you are rolling the pin you will obtain different fantastic effects. In this case I used some geometrical cutters.
Following a couple of examples of cakes and details with this technique. Try it, you will never leave...Read more http://cakesdecor.com/entries/1840-marble-technique-for-movement-effect-or-natural-details

If pumpkin pie made with evaporated milk simply stopped existing today, I wouldn't really care. Because even though that's the "back of the box" classic version, I prefer mine with sweetened condensed milk. Adding sweetened condensed milk not only saves you the trouble of measuring out sugar, as it provides all the sweetness your pie will need, but it also imparts a creamy, rich flavor. It's perfectly accented with a little salt, which takes the pie from earthy to ethereal, and completely crave-worthy.  It's also almost sinful how easy this pie is to make, so instead of using pumpkin pie...Read more http://www.cakespy.com/blog/2014/11/25/best-ever-pumpkin-pie-with-sweetened-condensed-milk.html

Whale Baby Shower Topper and Cupcake Stand This cupcake tower and cake topper was created for a whale themed baby shower in Boonton, NJ last weekend. The top tier includes a cute gray whale spouting turquoise, navy and white water from his blowhole. The front of the topper includes an anchor and rope to round out the nautical/whate theme. Along with the topper cake we included 50 vanilla with chocolate and chocolate with vanilla cupcakes with coordinating navy and white liners.

This week is going to be busy busy. I’m trying to get ready for all the cooking and baking … and eating (YAY) for Thanksgiving. It’s like my favorite day. Things are coming along and most of the menu is planned. I just need to figure out what I’m making for dessert to sit beside the sweet potato pie my mom is bringing. I think I want to make something I haven’t tried before, but I can’t decide what. Buttermilk Pie maybe. While I’m being indecisive, I thought I’d share a handful of Thanksgiving-worthy treats if you need some last...Read more http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/Bakerella/~3/UZFU4l46qIg/
