My boyfriend’s son has become a big fan of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. For his 3rd birthday I decided I was going to make him a TMNT birthday cake, since everyday his favourite character changes I decided to use the image of all 4 turtles.

To make the cake I used a 12″ cake pan and used a combination of royal icing (sides of cake and turtles faces) and premade roll out hard icing (I am an amateur so I don’t know what it’s called).

I designed my template by sketching the turtles onto paper, then transferring the design to baking paper then onto the cake.

Using a black gel frosting pen I outlined the faces then used coloured royal icing to “paint” the colour on. When I had finished the top I iced the sides with a bright yellow and stuck novelty rings into the front edge of the cake added the candle and sparklers and that’s it!
