This is from an idea in a 2005 Woman's World Magazine. I couldn't get many of the cookies mentioned in the article, so I used what my grocery store had. The Bundt cake I used was the Triple chocolate from Sam's Club, but any cake could be used, store bought or homemade. You can also use a frosted layer cake.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 bundt chocolate cake
  • 12 cup confectioners' sugar
  • 7 lemon cream-filled vanilla sandwich cookies
  • 4 gingersnaps
  • 8 fudge-striped shortbread cookies
  • 7 coconut biscuits
  • 1 stella d'oro breakfast cookie
  • 9 Hershey chocolate kisses
  • 1 strawberry fruit roll-up


  1. Work on a platter or covered cardboard.
  2. Place the Bundt cake on the platter and fill in the hole with some cookies.
  3. Place the confectioners sugar in a ziploc bag and work in a little water to form a "glue." Snip the end off of the bag.
  4. Place the lemon cookies and gingersnaps around the center of the cake.
  5. "Glue" the Stella D'Oro cookie to resemble a turkey's head.
  6. Add a large drop of "glue" for eye and add a candy.
  7. "Glue" a candy sideways to resemble beak.
  8. Cut fruit roll up to resemble turkey's wattle and press it in position.
  9. Arrange cookies around the cake to resemble feathers.
  10. Feel free to experiment!
