Add some color and fun to your Thanksgiving dessert table this year by serving a festive Chocolate Cake Roll Turkey decorated with sugar coated marshmallows, chocolate sprinkles. and more.
My friend, Meaghan, from The Decorated Cookie, creates amazing marshmallow treats, and last Thanksgiving she designed the cutest turkey cake made using a bundt cake and a colorful plumage of marshmallow feathers. I loved it.
This year, I was inspired by her creativity, to turn a chocolate cake roll into a turkey for Thanksgiving dinner.
I used brightly colored marshmallow pops for the feathers, covered the entire body of the turkey (the cake roll) in chocolate sprinkles, and added a chocolate head, wings, and feet. The facial features are all created out of marshmallows too.
If you’ve never made a cake roll before, and worry about the cake cracking, this is a good one to try out first, as the frosting and sprinkles cover up any tiny or large imperfections.
