Turtle Birthday Cake

My brother loves turtles, maybe not like this guy, but they are his favorites. For his birthday he asked if I could make a 3D turtle carrot cake. I had never tried that before, but told him I would give it my best shot and used the carrot pineapple seen here.

The trial cake.Final product. His drawings are very light hearted so I tried to duplicate that with the cake.

He likes to draw his turtles with wings (I don’t know why), so I caramelized sugar and added those.

Very glad he liked it. Happy Birthday David!

    Hey Lisa! It’s Annie from church. You taught me in sunday school when I was little. I think you are an amazing chef and from what I’ve seen here you have a great talent. I thought the turtle cake was really cute! I also loved the nobinettes from a few pages back. They looked YUMMY!!! 🙂 I hope we can see you soon!
