Thanksgiving cake

I used Swiss buttercream to frost. The cake is GF chocolate. I also used Erica's raspberry buttercream for the layers. I topped it with a chocolate turkey and candied cranberries. I drizzled the top with left over sugar crystals. It was a big hit! Everyone thought I bought it from a bakery.

Q&A with thefaj11714662

YayaOrchid asked:
does the class include a recipe for the cake itself? Your cake is spectacular!
thefaj11714662 answered:
AWWWE! Thank you! I used my own chocolate cake recipe for this because the class does not include recipes for cake. The class taught me how to make the filling (raspberry buttercream) and the outer layer (Swiss vanilla buttercream), and create a smooth finish. I googled how to make sugared cranberries and I found the turkey at Whole Foods. I have made several cakes since then and my skills continue to get better!
