Delectably Creative Treats

Sweet Turkey Dessert Centerpiece

Thanksgiving is just around the corner. That means lots of planning, cleaning, and looking for new ideas to keep the little ladies busy, while I am scrambling to get our huge family, holiday dinner on the table.



I have been fortunate to work with Little Debbie as their brand ambassador, which has allowed me to really get creative using their products. I have had the pleasure of tasting all of Little Debbie’s amazing Fall snacks and treats. My family and I are particularly fond of the Little Debbie Fall Party Cakes. I wanted to incorporate these versatile and tasty little cakes into a fun and interactive dessert for our Thanksgiving table.



Whenever I can get my little ones hands on a helpful activity to share in the dinner preps, I absolutely get those kids to work. Armed with Little Debbie Fall Party Cakes, I came up with a Sweet Turkey Dessert Centerpiece. This adorable little turkey has feathers made of Little Debbie Fall Party Cakes, Little Debbie Pumpkin Spice Rolls, and colored marshmallows. Not only is this sweet turkey cute and fun to look at while indulging in a huge dinner, but also the perfectly sweet ending kids of all ages will look forward to demolishing.
