I first saw this idea on The Great American Bake-Off this summer and decided that I really needed to try making a peekaboo cake myself because the idea is brilliant. I searched the internet for instructions and found this one from Very Culinary. She did it with pink cake and Valentine’s Day hearts but I thought I’d try making a Thanksgiving stuffed turkey version. And I love how it turned out.
Wouldn’t this be such a cute gift for your Thanksgiving dinner host or a friend? Wrap it all up and let your friend be surprised with the cute turkey inside when they cut into it.
Want to make your own? You can check out the full tutorial here but I will tell you it was so much easier than I thought it would be. The only change I made to this recipe is instead of using food coloring I added in 2 T of cocoa powder to get the brown color, and I used an extra 1/2 cup of powdered sugar to make my icing more of a frosting.
