Rafael Ninja Turtle Cake

rafael ninja turtle cakeI made this Rafael Ninja Turtle Cake for my son's 5th birthday.

One of my first attempts at cutting out my cakes.I did this cake in no time. I used a 14 inch oblong tin. 3 butter cake mixes. Cut out figure with sharp knife.

I iced it green with butter cream icing. I used a length of red ribbon for Rafael, two smarties for the eyes then pipe mouth on. Change the color of the ribbon for the other ninja colors. The kids loved it.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle Michaelangelo Cake

I used two 9 inch round vanilla cakes (baked) to create the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle Cake. I then cut them into the shapes I needed. I used vanilla frosting dyed green, and various candies and cookies for the accents!

Sea Turtles Under the Sea

sea turtles under the sea cakeThis sea turtles under the sea cake is a red velvet cake with buttercream frosting, carved to the desired shape, covered in handmade marbled fondant and decorated with things mad from chocolate, and gum paste/fondant mix.

The cake was carved to create the formation of rocks. It's much easier to carve when the cake is frozen.

The marbleized fondant was made to look like stone by combining black and white fondant and twisting it until the colors were mixed in but not completely. Then the fondant was rolled out and applied to the cake. Some of this same fondant was formed into the rocks that sit along the cake.

The coral was made in a bright orange gum paste. The leaves in green gum paste. The turtles were hand painted with powdered food coloring and vodka when dry. There are also a few fish done in a navy blue gum paste.

The effect on the turtles shell was done by applying brown paint and then wiping it off. The legs has the dots applied with the tip of the paintbrush.
