This is How We Roll: Buche de Thanksgiving for Serious Eats!

Buche de Thanksgiving
Pie is great and all...but seriously, doesn't cake deserve a little more love around Thanksgiving? I sure thought so, and in an effort to bring cake back to the forefront of America's biggest eating day, I concocted a little something I call the Bûche de Thanksgiving--a November version of the more-famous Bûche de Noël.

This Thanksgiving version starts with a rich pumpkin roll cake filled with cream cheese frosting--and then gets even better when swathed in chocolate cream cheese frosting and decorated with marzipan turkey detailing.

Ready for this awesome? Check out the full post and recipe at Serious Eats.

P.S. Oh, the post also includes how to make...Marzipan Turkeys!

You are a genius! My Mum is from Norway and she loves Marzipan. I might get all creative and try to make this for her ... genius!

I would so much rather have cake than pi e, on any holiday.
LOVE the marzipan turkey!

That turkey is so cute! The cake looks great too!

Oh my gosh, that turkey looks EXACTLY like a Play-Doh turkey mold I had when I was a kid. There was a whole set of three-dimensional molds where jammed a ball of Play-Doh into each half then mashed them together and trimmed the oozing excess and there you go--turkey, carrots, potatoes, a whole dinner!

Thanks everyone for the sweet comments! And Amanda: why didn't I have that mold too??? I must be making up for lost time.
