I feel like it’s been for.ev.er since I shared a cake with you! There have been so many sales and deals, tips, and giveaways… which are great – but it’s time for a CAKE, dontcha think? Me too! So here it is… a Turkey Hunting Groom’s Cake.
This groom’s cake went to the same wedding as this very fancy Vintage Lace Wedding Cake with Sugar Roses. It was the ultimate contrast… the elegant, lacy wedding cake and the rustic, rough-around-the-edges groom’s cake.
And I have to tell ya – this groom’s cake made me nervous. I initially had no idea how I was going to do the turkeys and well… when trying out a new cake decorating method, I’m always nervous! But after I devised a plan, they really seemed to come together well.
On every side of both tiers, there were “chocolate” turkeys with grass and leaves. For the turkeys, I printed a pic, laid wax paper over it, then piped the design with Candy Writers. After it hardened, I peeled the wax paper off and flipped the turkeys over for a smooth front!
I did the same for some of the flat blades of grass, then used the Candy Writers to do messy loops for the more 3-D Grass. After letting those harden, I stuck them to the side of the cake, then piped the border to hold them on!
The topper on this cake was a pile of edible shotgun shells. I bought Earlene’s Shotgun Shells kit to make these. They weren’t quite as easy as I hoped, but overall, I was happy with the way they turned out!
And that’s it really… all I can tell you about this cake. Since making the first one, I think I’ve done a version of this three times now and the grooms always love it!
