HAPPY THANKSGIVING Y’ALL!
As your resident (blogspace) Americophile, I’m wishing you a very happy thanksgiving (“friendsgiving”!) wherever you happen to be.
T asked me to make a cake for his work’s thanksgiving pot luck so last night after finishing the work stuff, I started at around 22:30 (having already made the cake) and came up with this.
He is made out of a 9 inch vanilla madeira cake and based on cartoon American turkeys I found on the internet… Our turkeys in the UK don’t look like that! Anyway I thought he turned out quite funny – I find his expression hilarious. As with all my cakes, I don’t do fondant – just buttercream – so he’s covered in buttercream and all the decorations are piped. I eventually finished at 2am or something ridiculous as I had a bit of inspiration fatigue! But I think he turned out nice! 🙂
(I think some people just bring shop bought stuff to work for pot luck days but I am basically the work equivalent of a soccer mom… There’s no way that I’m going to be beaten in the bring-some-stuff-to-work stakes!)
T managed to get him to work in one piece and said that he was the toast of all his colleagues.
So all that remains for me to say for this pm is Happy Thanksgiving!
As for tonight – no rest for the wicked… I have a big cake to make for Saturday. It is rather ambitious… Wish me luck!
