I immediately said German chocolate, with carmel coconut filling, chocolate buttercream and gnache topping. Christy told me that her dad likes plain German chocolate. Plain? I don't even know how to do a plain cake anymore! Eventually I talked her in to a more snazzy cake...and eventually she even asked for a turkey on the cake to commemorate the holiday!
I have to say that German chocolate cake and frosting is more challenging than I initially thought...the frosting itself turned out terrible the first time. My stovetop seems to heat hotter and faster than any stovetop known to man, and that resulted in, basically, scrambled eggs with butter. Gross. My second go round was much more successful, thankfully. If it hadn't have been, I would have had to make a 3rd grocery run for more eggs! The final product was delicious!
Having never done a turkey out of frosting before, I googled frosting turkey, and found a couple of pictures online of what I wanted it to look like, and there you have it! Frosting Turkey. I just basically layered milk chocolate and dark chocolate buttercream...so not only was he adorable, but tasty!
Pretty much the cutest frosting turkey I have ever seen. Period.
You could just eat him up!
He looks a little scared, don't you think?
And then here's Mr. Bigelow with his cake and daughters!
Until the next time I get a chance to post, enjoy the holidays....eat cake!
