FOOD FUN: Raw Turkey Cake

Put your “Thanksgiving hat” on: It’s time to get ready for the next leg of the fall/winter holiday trifecta.

We somehow ended up on the website of London-based Sarah Hardy Cakes and were beguiled by this cake that looks like a raw turkey.

Thanksgiving is an American holiday; Ms. Hardy made her turkey cake last Christmas as a treat for her family last. The cake is a spiced orange and rum cake with a butter cream and marzipan “skin.”

While Ms. Hardy produces the most exquisite wedding cakes and other special occasion cakes, she occasionally goes quirky. She has an impressive portfolio of “anatomical cakes”: a heart, a lung cake with emphysema and a spinal column.

She was asked by the museum to create the cakes for an exhibit after winning last year’s Cake & Bake Show in London.

A great creative exercise, or a waste of amazing cake? We’d have to vote for both.

Exhibit visitors could purchase a gift box of white chocolate vertebrae with dark chocolate ganache filling, showing progressive osteoarthritis; or a gift box of prostate truffles, showing healthy and cancerous prostates with ginger, darkest chocolate and toasted nuts.

Amazingly, Sarah is an untrained baker; her background is as an artist and sculptor. She started making cakes as a stay-at-home mom.
