This gobble-worthy cake is sure to turn heads!
There are many things to love about Thanksgiving—the turkey, the gravy, the mashed potatoes—but the dessert is what makes our hearts sing. There is no universe where we could tire of pumpkin or pecan pie, but we also know traditions need a shake-up now and then. Everyone loves ice cream, and Baskin-Robbins has a treat made to impress this holiday season: the Turkey Ice Cream Cake!
Simply put, this cake is quite the showstopper—and one that will turn some heads when it sits beside the stuffing and cranberry sauce. From the outside, it may look identical to the classic main course, but that all stops the moment you cut into it. The cake resembles a real-life cooked turkey, except the drum sticks are comprised of sugar cones and come coated in a caramel praline glaze. The green piping lining the sides completes the optical illusion of the picturesque bird found on every dining room table in America.
The best part? Baskin-Robbins allows you to pick your flavor of ice cream. The chain suggests seasonal flavors like Pumpkin Pie and Egg Nog, but any of their 31 flavors would pair well. We could see "Pralines 'n Cream" for a double-down on the sticky-sweet coating, or "Quarterback Crunch" for an autumnal kick of vanilla ice cream with chocolate-covered rice crunchies and a ribbon of caramel.
Another treat the creamery is offering is their Harvest Swirl Cake. A frosted beauty with fall-themed decor on top, customers can pick their choice of ice cream and cake. We recommend "Pumpkin Cheesecake ice cream," which happens to be their ice cream flavor of the month! It features pumpkin and cheesecake-flavored ice cream, with pieces of gingersnap cookie and a cream-cheese ribbon running through it.
Whatever flavors you choose for your desserts, we guarantee they'll be the centerpiece of any Thanksgiving spread. Who knows? They may just become your next holiday tradition!
These festive treats can be found all November long, while supplies last, so we recommend checking with your local Baskin-Robbins for more details. You can locate your nearest store here.
