Easy Cake Decorating Ideas For Thanksgiving Cakes


Thanksgiving Cakes | Easy Cake Decorating IdeasThese easy cake decorating ideas for Thanksgiving cakes will have family and friends ‘ooohing’ and ‘ahhhing’ at your mad cake decorating skills!  You might not think that Thanksgiving cakes are all that common, but some of us enjoy cake as much as pie, so decorating Thanksgiving cakes is a creative and fun activity that adds quite a bit of interest to your holiday family gathering.   My famous buttermilk pies, along with pumpkin and pecan pies are still requisite fare at my holiday table, but my personal favorite is cake so … I have to have my cake!

The easiest way I’ve found to learn unique ways to decorate cakes is to study some easy cake decorating ideas from their pictures.  I gravitate toward web sites that not only show pictures of decorated cakes I’d like to try making, but that describe how they did it.

Take the lovely Pumpkin Spice Cake with the cute pumpkin decorations by Natalia Wilson on Flickr that’s shown here.  It’s pretty and easy and one of those easy cake decorating ideas that anyone can do!  You could sculpt the pumpkins from marzipan, fondant, gum paste OR you could use those yummy mellow creme candy pumpkins, an Autumn mix version of mellow creme candies or even candy corn.  Yum!

Of course, another easy cake decorating idea is to use a novelty shaped cake pan, like the Wilton novelty cake pans. There are several sweet possibilities and they’d be super easy to decorate to your own preferences.  I included the football cake pan because you know the guys would get a kick out of a football cake on Thanksgiving Day!

There are many more ways to decorate a scrumptious Thanksgiving cake for your family feast. Take a look at these gorgeous Thanksgiving cakes courtesy of Flickr.  Now take a deep breathe and remember this:  You can decorate a cake in any way that you want.  Use your imagination to achieve the results you’re looking for.  It’s easier than you think!

How about that roast turkey cake?  Isn’t it a hoot?  Or should I say…isn’t it a gobble?  Our baker didn’t say how they made it, but from studying that picture, I’d say those are two loaves of cake, wouldn’t you?  For the drumsticks and wings, I would use mini loaf pans.  Actually, you could also use rice crispy treats to shape them too.

I did find another web site with some adorable turkey cake designs.  I like it because each baker explained how they made their cake to come out like a ‘roast turkey.’
