Foodie Friday - Turkeys

Thank you Gollum for hosting Foodie Friday at Designs by Gollum!

Today, I want to talk Turkey, but not the kind you are thinking! I not only have lots of ceramic turkeys that I decorate with in the fall, I like to decorate foods to look like turkeys!

Here are two examples:

Turkey Cheese Ball

I got this idea from a magazine decades ago, but made it my own way with port wine cheese and crackers that were easily found.

Here is a picture

Turkey Chees Ball

and here is my recipe Turkey Cheese Ball.

Here is a very easy Turkey Cake that I also got the idea from a magazine, but completely changed. The key to this cake is finding the Stella D'Oro breakfast cookies. I found them in Rite Aid of all places!!!!

Here is the platter I made the cake on

Turkey Cake Platter

I used a Triple Chocolate Cake from Sam's Club and added round cookies to fill in the hole in the middle.

Turkey Cake 2

Then I added the cookies and candies to make the "turkey."

Here is the recipe No Bake Turkey Cake .

I hope this has inspired you to cook some turkey shaped treats of your own! :D Jewel

Thanks for sharing. The turkey cake is cute.

I'm so sorry I haven't been by for a while. Google has had my blog so messed up that I have spent hours daily trying to get it fixed and they have no idea how to help.
I have missed coming by and wanted to stop by and wish you a Merry Christmas.
Merry Christmas
