Thankscaking (Thanksgiving + cake)

"Thankscaking” (Thanksgiving + cake) was popularized in the Huffington Post article, “Thanksgiving Cake Combines All Your Favorite Sides Into One Swell Slice. Go Nail Thanksgiving” by Kristen Aiken, on November 19, 2014. HuffPost Taste editor Julie Thomson had suggested a layer cake of Thanksgiving sides, such as cornbread, cranberry sauce and stuffing. “Or, as we like to call it, a Thankscaking,” Aiken wrote.

“Okay, how does this sound: Cupcakes filled with stuffing, gravy, mashed potatoes and turkey. How many would you buy? #thankscaking” was cited on Twitter on October 25, 2010.

Well, that’s when you make a Thanksgiving Cake. Or, as we like to call it, a Thankscaking. Get ready to fall in love with something you might currently think sounds disgusting.

This crazy suggestion came from the mind of HuffPost Taste editor Julie Thomson, who we perhaps thought had gone insane for a moment. But upon reflection, the idea of a Thanksgiving cake is sheer perfection: Build layer upon layer of your favorite Thanksgiving sides, allowing the textures and flavors to meld together in one delicious bite. It’s like the day after Thanksgiving, without the waiting.

Here’s how we made it happen: A layer of cornbread, topped with cranberry sauce, topped with a layer of stuffing cake (!), topped with gravy and creamed spinach, topped with another layer of cornbread. Then we iced the whole thing with mashed sweet potatoes, topped it with mashed potato piping, and decorated it with cranberries and French-fried onions (you know, for the “green bean casserole effect").
