Cowabunga! I made a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles cake! It is actually the second TMNT cake I have made, but I really enjoyed this one. I did a couple of funky things, so I wanted to share it straight away.
This cake was a fairly late request and I ummmed and arrred whether I should make it. But I haven’t made any cakes so far this month, so I said yes! Plus I have seen so many cool TMNT cakes that I wanted to try another one.
It was my friend’s Mum who ordered the cake for her Grandson. I don’t know who likes my cakes more: my friend or her Mum! Her Mum loves the fondant and my friend the buttercream. I am more of a buttercream girl myself – I think I have played with too much fondant and smelled too much of it. Bit too sickly for me now. But a little bit is always nice!
My friend the other day shared a video on Facebook of how to make a checkered rainbow cake – the actual cake, not the decorations. So I thought I would give it a go. Even if the checkers failed it would still taste nice!! So this is what the inside looked like.
I loved the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles growing up. My middle sister and I started Karate around the same time TMNT started on TV, so I think we thought it was pretty cool that we did martial arts as well! I loved that they loved pizza; that the heroes were teenagers and were a little goofy; and I seem to recall Splinter shaking his head more than once, so it was cool that the heroes weren’t perfect! So here is the cake I made that was based on someone else’s design:
I found this cake quite therapeutic. I was so happy the bricks turned out okay, I didn’t really measure the first (vertical) lot of lines and then when I went to do the horizontal ones I was worried I had made them too thin or thick because I didn’t think it through. I was very lucky they worked out! I then painted the cake with silver dust mixed with dipping solution. I think it was the painting I found so relaxing. Especially since it was all one colour so I didn’t have to worry too much about where I was putting it.
Everyone seemed to love the cake and my friend and her cousin made TMNT cards for the birthday boy too. They looked very cool together.So here is the big reveal! The inside of the cake! The kids (and adults) were very impressed with the colours.
Sorry I haven’t written too many blog posts recently. I know life is full of trying times, I just feel like I have seen a little too many recently, so I haven’t felt very creative nor entertaining lately, and I really want my posts to be somewhat entertaining! But I read some very wise words today, so I’ll share them with you and will write some more posts very soon!
