My children always give me a challenge for their birthdays. When my daughter was turning 10 she wanted a komodo dragon cake. You just can’t go buy one of those at the IGA. That’s the year I started making all my children’s birthday cakes, so for her 12th she wanted a turtle birthday cake and this is what I came up with. The bottom is just a round cake pan and the top is a glass Pyrex bowl. The head, legs and tail are cupcakes.
