Rated 5 out of 5 by from This cake is so cute. I decorated the people to resemble family members and hand painted the plates and cups to match my mom's table settings. Everyone loved and it and I had a lot of fun making it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I made this cake for Thanksgiving one year. Everyone loved it and was very impressed with the detail in it. It isn't terribly difficult but takes a lot of time. I made my turkey a little smaller than this recipe calls for and added a bowl of corn and a bowl of green beans.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I made this cake for Thanksgiving this year and it turned out great! It was very time consuming. The only thing I wasn't impressed about was decorating the people...they continuously broke for me! Other than that it was fun to make and made a good impression around the dinner table!
