Will you eat a turkey cake for dessert? Talented food artist Sarah Hardy creates delicious turkey cakes, which looks just like real ones ready to go into the oven.
In an interview with Food Insider, the passionate artist shared that she used to make wax figures for museums but she had to stop creating those masterpieces when she bore a child because it involves that use of chemicals that may h
arm the child inside her womb.
Luckily, years after her journey as a mother, Sarah had an unexpected comeback — this time making sculpted cakes for her children. This, eventually, led her to baking extraordinary and realistic ones, including the famous turkey cake that she has been making since 2012.
“So I stopped,” she shared. “And then when they (her kids) grew up a little bit, I start making cakes for them and I couldn’t help but start making sculpted cakes for them. That’s how I started.”
“You’re giving it to someone as a present. You wanna give them an experience, not just a taste experience. You can give them the experience of surprise and a bit of joy, as well,” she continued.
The turkey cake is made of four layers of sponge, covered with bright pink buttercream icing which gives it a realistic, pinkish look.
In an Instagram post, Sarah shared that her turkey cake “has delighted and revol
ted people ever since.”
