Happy Turkey Day (almost)!

I was asked to make a pumpkin pie for Thanksgiving, and being the decorator that I am, I decided it will need dressing up a bit.  Now I haven't made the pie yet; I'll do that Wednesday night.  But last night I decided to do a little character work.

I had some leftover gum paste from making the flower for the Twilight cake, so I got that out last night and tried my hand at a bird.  A traditional bird.

Ready-made Wilton gum paste.

Off to a good start!

Looking good so far!

Side view.  I'm surprised at how quickly this little guy came together.

Wings on...finished!

Front view of the finished bird.  I'm going to paint him tonight, so I'll post that update tomorrow.  Looks like a turkey, right?
