This year I got to make Thanksgiving cakes for two of my co-workers! As always, they let me chose my own theme. This year I was in a My Neighbor Totoro mood.
I can’t decide if he’s flying on the wind or farting fall leaves, both seem in the spirit of the Thanksgiving holiday. This is obviously a Fruit & Cream cake with cream cheese icing decor.
It was actually very difficult to find Thanksgiving/fall themed images of My Neighbor Totoro. I kind of wanted to do something like that Thanksgiving episode of Bob’s Burgers, but I have very little time to develop my artistic vision during the holidays. This is chocolate decor on top of a White Chocolate Coconut cake.
This last one was for a co-worker who I remember mentioning had a young nephew. Since Despicable Me 2 is due out in December, I figured he would love a minion cake.
This image can either be interpreted as a minion shooting at a turkey or a minion shooting turkey gun, both of which would be fitting for a minion. This is our seasonal Pumpkin cake, but I switched out the whip cream for cream cheese icing, which I think is a far superior combination. The nephew did indeed love the cake, and requested the slice with the minion on it. Until next year…Happy Turnkey Day!
