Thanksgiving is almost here, and we have an easy & CUTE Turkey Cake Topper tutorial to share with you! This sweet turkey cake is so much fun to make, and is sure to bring smiles to your Thanksgiving celebrations!
In this turkey cake tutorial, we’ll show you how to model a simple & funny turkey body from rice cereal treats and gum paste. Once the bird is placed onto the cake, it’s time for feathers! I love the feathers for the height, color, and texture that they add to this design.
You could easily create gum paste feathers (with anchors attached) to insert behind the turkey, but we decided to use candy coating!
I love candy coating cake decorations because they can be made so quickly! There’s no need to add anchors to these chocolate feathers, you’ll just need to make them a little longer, keeping in mind that part of each feather will be pushed into the cake.
