I got the chance to make a ninja turtles birthday cake for a boy turning 6 this week! I was pretty excited/nervous because I wanted to make sure the details were all there for this little guy. I mean 6 year olds know their favorite characters really well am I right?! As I was doing this cake I found out my husband and several friends consider themselves ninja turtle fans (ahem… experts) from when we were that age :) so I had lots of help getting this just right!
We’ll without further ado, here it is pizza/NYC manhole cover/turtles and all…
Now to answer a few questions, yes I hand painted the fondant onions with purple food coloring, I piped on the windows and stars on the bottom layer, it is all homemade fondant and buttercream, the hands do have two fingers and a thumb, this is the first time I’ve used silver food coloring and I think it’s awesome, yes it took a very long 3 days to make, it is chocolate cake, yes my husband approves, and I would do it all again :) thanks for stopping by!
