Step By Step  

This chocolate cake roll is filled with marshmallow frosting and decorated with colorful marshmallow pop feathers.

As prepared by Hungry Happenings,

If you’re looking for a really fun Thanksgiving dessert to serve this year (one that might even get a few laughs) you've got to make these Turkey Roll Cakes. With their colorful marshmallow tail feathers, they look like they jumped right out of a cartoon!

These turkeys were inspired by The Decorated Cookie’s Chocolate-Dipped Marshmallow Turkey Cake. The brightly-colored sugar-coated marshmallow pops are simple to make and add just the right splash of color to the chocolate sprinkle-covered cake rolls.

Each recipe creates two cake rolls filled with whipped cookies and cream marshmallow filling. So decorate one or both and bring them along to your Thanksgiving dinner. Your people are going to love them!

If you've never made a cake roll before, the most important step in the process is rolling the cakes immediately as they come out of the oven, so be sure you have everything set up and ready to go because the cakes bake very quickly.

Start by making your life easier and line two 10x15 baking pans with non-stick tin foil or parchment paper. Make the cake batter, then spread half of the batter into each of the two pans.

Bake for 10-12 minutes. To tell if the cake is done, press a finger on top of the cake; it should spring back. While your cakes are baking sprinkle cocoa powder over two clean kitchen towels. As soon as the cakes are ready, remove them from the oven and immediately flip one onto each kitchen towel. Peel away the tin foil or parchment paper.

While cakes are still hot, carefully roll up the cake and the towel from the narrow end. Allow the cakes to cool for 30 minutes, and no longer.

While the cakes are cooling, make the filling. Beat Betty Crocker™ Cookies ‘n’ Creme Frosting with marshmallow cream. Add whipped topping.

Unroll the cakes and spread half of the filling over each cake.

Carefully roll the cakes back up.

If the filling starts to ooze out the ends, just remove the excess. If the cakes have cracked a little, don't worry—they’ll get covered in frosting next.

Spread chocolate frosting over the outside of each cake roll. You can heat the frosting and pour it over, but I found it just as easy to spread it over the cake. You can cover the ends in frosting or just leave them as they are, so the swirl shows.

To add some texture to the turkeys, sprinkle chocolate jimmies all over the frosted cake.

To create the colorful tail feathers, you'll need to dip some marshmallows in water, then dab with paper towels and roll in colored sugar. Color 9 marshmallows yellow, 9 orange, and 9 red. You'll also need to cut one marshmallow in half, and another into thirds. Dip these pieces in red sugar. You'll only use two of the 1/3 cut pieces, so you can enjoy a little snack.

Skewer 1 red, 1 orange, and one yellow marshmallow onto 5 lollipop sticks.

Create two skewers with a 1/3 red marshmallow and a red, orange, and yellow marshmallow. Create two skewers with 1/2 red marshmallow and a red, orange, and yellow marshmallow. These will be used to create a more rounded appearance to the tail feathers. Depending on the size lollipop stick you’re using, you may want to cut them so that when they’re arranged in a half circle the sticks don't touch.

Set your cake rolls on serving dishes and arrange 9 marshmallow pops into a half circle around the top part of the cake rolls using the larger pops at the base of the half circle.

To create the features of the turkey, pipe candy melts into two 4-inch circles and four wings onto parchment paper. Freeze for 5 minutes until set.

Pipe a turkey foot and immediately sprinkle with orange sugar. Repeat, creating four feet. Pipe two wattles (the red skin that hangs down from the turkey's beak) and immediately sprinkle with red sugar.

Cut a marshmallow into two triangle beaks. Roll in water, dab in paper towels, and roll in orange sugar. Cut the remaining two marshmallows in half. Draw pupils onto each marshmallow using a black food coloring marker.
