12 Thanksgiving Cakes We Are Grateful For

During this time of year, we are often called on to reflect on the world around us and take stock of all of the things we appreciate. This Thanksgiving, you may be grateful for your family, or maybe you want to give thanks for your job or the roof over your head. Or maybe you just simply are thankful to be alive. But this Thanksgiving, while we are thankful for so many things, one thing we are eternally grateful for at The Daily Meal is a beautiful cake.
