My husband's work was having a party the day before Thanksgiving, so he asked me to make a cake. I considered making a cake that looked like a table full of food, ransacked, with spilled cups, food everywhere, a stained cloth, a turkey carcass on a platter, etc. I thought that would be fun, and relatively easy.

I jokingly said that it would be fun to make a cake that actually looks like a turkey.
A friend (my sister-in-law's sister-in-law) asked me to make a cake for her daughter's birthday. It was her first sleepover, so I decided to make a cake that looked like a little girl asleep in her sleeping bag. Here it is:
The little girls at the party all had to have some "popcorn" and a piece of the overnight bag with their slice of cake!
