Thanksgiving Ideas

I'm casting about for some Thanksgiving recipe ideas.

This cake has the whole meal on one plate. From the originator: "Whether this Thanksgiving centerpiece incites horror, amazement, or confusion when it’s served, it’s certain to evoke some kind of outburst. Warning: This dish is not recommended for people who require an inch of space between food groups." Recipe here.

Thanks to blogger pal Toad, we can also have dessert in like fashion.


Directly from Toad's post: "To stay in the true spirit of the feast offer to bring Cherpumple, the turducken of desserts. Cherumple is a 3 layer cake (yellow, spice, white) with a pie baked in each layer (cherry, pumpkin, apple). Recipes are plentiful, look around, I won't help." Toad also offers other insightful comments, as usual.

Thanksgiving gives me anxiety.

I have never seen such a unique idea for as the Thanksgiving Turkey Cake. Although it seems like it could be a lot of work, it seems like it is definitely worth a shot…at least once! I am always looking for new and creative ideas for Thanksgiving dinner. I work with Better Recipes.com; if you are looking for the same, I definitely recommend you check out their Thanksgiving Recipe Ideas

Yeah, I saw that first one and had to look away. Cherpumple, though...

I think I'd have to have gravy on the side, sort of like a chocolate sauce on a real cake.
