I made this cute Turtle Cake for my niece’s birthday. It is a two layer cake covered with store bought, blue frosting.

The other frosting colors I made using white frosting, dyed using gel food coloring.

The seaweed was made using a round Wilton frosting tip. I piped squiggly lines starting at the bottom and going up.

I had fun adding bubbles and swimming candy fish. It’s always the little details that make a cake sparkle!

The hardest part of this cake was making the turtle out of fondant.  I used white fondant and colored it with gel food coloring.  I used edible cake decorating markers to add the spots on the turtles legs.  The eyes were store bought candy eyes attached with some frosting.

I really enjoyed making this cake for my niece and it got a lot of ooohs and aaahs from family and friends.
