No Thanksgiving table would be complete without a gorgeous centerpiece, but before you go spend serious moolah on glass gourds and ceramic pilgrims, look no further than this butter masterpiece. Shaped like a pint-sized turkey, this molded salted butter from Keller’s Creamery is the perfect addition to any holiday table.
Weighing in at 4 ounces (8 tablespoons), here is an edible turkey that will please vegetarians, carnivores and omnivores alike. Make sure to get one for the kids’ table, as little ones will love this adorable butter sculpture as well.
Retailing at $3.99, you can find Keller’s Creamery Turkey Shaped Salted Butter at many grocery stores, including Kroger, Walmart and Hy-Vee.
Not lucky enough to have local stores that stock Keller’s Creamery? You can make own your butter turkey sculpture at home by using a turkey mold like this one from Amazon. Although it is intended for making chocolate, happy reviewers said that they used the mold to make cute little butter turkeys.
At $6.15, it’s a low-cost way to try your hand at this fun project.
Too overwhelmed to sculpt butter turkeys on top of all of your other holiday cooking? You can satisfy your edible turkey sculpture needs by turning to Trader Joe’s, where you can find A Flock of Milk Chocolate Turkeys that are almost too cute to eat (almost). The flock of four chocolate turkeys is $3.99.
Here’s an image of one from Instagram user Bridget Edwards. Her blog, Bake at 350, has a review and tips on how to get these cute little birds to stand up on your table.
Or bring more gobble into the Thanksgiving meal by baking adorable turkey-shaped cookies. All you need is a turkey cookie cutter (like this one from Amazon), a simple sugar-cookie rollout recipe and some icing to decorate them.
You can also bring in Thanksgiving cheer with these turkey-shaped napkin holders and place settings. The Harvest Pewter Turkey Place Card Holders from Wayfair are perfect to set seats for your Thanksgiving table. Or, if you are having a buffet-style meal, you can use these turkeys as a way to label your dishes and help guests navigate your spread.
Will you add some cute turkey representations to your dining room this holiday?
