Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle Cake – Nov 13

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle Cake – Nov 13

Turtle mania has hit our house, in a big way, so naturally my son wanted a TMNT cake for his birthday. I found an image on Pinterest and took a snap of it with my phone (I don’t have pinterest on my phone sob sob). I basically just looked at the pic when I did the cake. It’s a shallow 8” Chocolate biscuit cake with a circle of grey fondant on top – to look like a manhole cover and the 4 turtle heads. It was actually straight forward to do and I think it came out really well, considering I did it quickly, while my kids were running about.

My big learning point, was that I should have used florist paste for the masks as the sugarpaste wasn’t flexible enought and kinda cracked on me. I have to make another one next week for a friends son, so he will get the improved version! I like the orginal and my son and his buddies LOVED it so we’re all happy!

I’ll put some pointers on my tutorials and tips page, in case anyone is interested in making one :-)
