Thanksgiving dinner…in a cake?

Those who thought the “cherpumple” was horrifying should get a load of this:

Details, along with the recipe, can be found at Chow.com:

Whether this Thanksgiving centerpiece incites horror, amazement, or confusion when it’s served, it’s certain to evoke some kind of outburst. Warning: This dish is not recommended for people who require an inch of space between food groups.

Game plan: The mashed potatoes and sweet potatoes can be made ahead. Rewarm them just prior to assembling the cake, so they are easy to spread.

If your attention lapses and the marshmallows happen to burn or catch fire while broiling (this actually happened to us), relax and just blow out the flames. Peel away the burnt marshmallows, leaving the sweet potato layer intact, and start over with a fresh topping of marshmallows.

H/T to Sully. Urp.

Deacon Greg
One more such assault on Epicurean sensibilities and the reprogrammers from the Culinary Institute of America in Hyde Park are going to kidnap you for two weeks of intensive treatment! Though I must admit, this one is intriguing.
Moonshadow,
I agree. It looks like Shepherd’s Pie

Gaudete! And let's break out a carol or two...
"Gesu Bambino," anyone? This is one of my favorites, and nobody does it better than these gals: Kathleen Battle and Frederica von Staade. Enjoy.
