Fudgie the Whale

Are you old enough to remember Fudgey the Whale?  This cupcake cake reminded me of Fudgie and the Tom Carvel commercials.  For those of you not old enough to know what I'm talking about, Tom Carvel started the chain of ice cream parlors and popularized the ice cream cake.  His first cake was Fudgey, and that mold got used for several other cakes by changing the decorations on top and this turkey just looks like a cake Carvel would make and have multiple uses for the mold.

Onto the challenge...this is the photo for Cupcake Inspirations Challenge CIC137.  Our sponsor this week is JLJ Designs.  By the way, JLJ Designs is owned by one of our own sweeties,  Jennifer, and she's offering a $10 gift certificate for use in her store and $10 can go a long way.   For my project I used the Thanksgiving Digital Scrapbooking kit.  What a great value!   There are 15 digital papers and 30 elements and as you can see they're not just for scrapbooking.  I used just two of the the papers and one of the elements to give you an idea of how you can use them before you have the photos to scrap.  I've started with place cards, which no one in my family will ever pay attention to but maybe your folks are better behaved.   If you make the place tag large enough later on it can be used for the "totin" bag.  Whenever I host Thanksgiving dinner everyone gets sent home with a bag of leftovers so they too can enjoy a turkey sandwich.  Then there's the little bag of doggie cookie treats, there's always room for pets at our celebrations and they get a bag too.  This would be perfect for a grandchild too, of course you'd put real cookies in it.   If you've got kiddies running around, you can enlist their help cutting out the turkeys or other decorative elements you use.  The kids love to help with arts and crafts projects. 

Here's the deets:
