Holiday horrors part 2: Cold turkey

The coupon in the paper showed a creation shinier than a plastic car bumper that was so mind bending, it left me a bit queasy: An ice-cream cake shaped like a Thanksgiving turkey.

According to the maker, Baskin-Robbins, the legs are made from sugar cones that are covered with the same glaze as the rest of the ice cream and topped with white paper poofs. The wings are doodled on. You can order it in any kind of  ice-cream you like, but I don’t think the company offers stuffing flavor.

Making gravy could be a problem with this turkey, unless you let it sit for a few hours at room temperature. It would solve the problem of what to feed vegetarian guests, and it surely tastes better than a Tofurky.
