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!
