In Holiday Guide Commentary

Behold: the turkey cake. (Not made with actual turkey.)

Give thanks for the "Turkey Cake"

On a recent trip to Baskin-Robbins, my family saw a poster for the "Turkey Cake." We all laughed at its hyper-realistic glaze and shape. And my wife decided it was the perfect weird addition to bring to my parents' Thanksgiving dinner.

The description of the cake, which says it serves 12-16 people, is a little vague:

"Our unique dessert is sure to be the centerpiece of any holiday gathering. This all ice cream cake with sugar cone legs can be customized with your guest's favorite flavor."

Is it turkey-flavored? What's that brown glaze all about? Does it contain bones? What's with its little feet?

On Baskin-Robbins' website, you can choose from 16 different flavors, but we called in the order by phone, so the flavor was a mystery until we picked it up on Tuesday. They set aside a small "turkey," for $32.99.

It looks like we have a new Thanksgiving tradition in the Tarnoff family.

Our turkey cake was chocolate chip flavored, and the brown glaze was caramel. No, there is no difference between white meat and dark meat. It actually was really good, and more importantly, provided many laughs as we carved it up.

I totally endorse the ice cream turkey cake. It may not replace the apple pie at my parent's Thanksgiving table. But it will sit hilariously next to it for years to come.
