Today I want to share with you a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Cake and Cupcakes. I was really surprised when I got the request for these… they were popular when I was a kid but I honestly didn’t know Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles were still around and “in” these days.
I’m so out of touch! Ha!
I wish I could take credit for these fun little toppers, but honestly, these were done 100% by my husband. I was swamped with a million things going on that weekend and he stepped in and saved the day by making the cupcake toppers and the cake topper for me.
He hand cut the faces using an Xacto knife and then embellished them with the masks, eyes, mouths, etc. I think it was better that he made them anyway… he is a “boy” after all and I’d have never gotten all the details right 😉
I used the Fox Run alphabet cutters to do Drew’s name and then silicone pearl mold to do the border. All of the red embellishments were Satin Ice Red Vanilla fondant. The cake was 2 layers (about 4″ tall) and it was baked in 6″ round pans.
Didn’t the hubs do a fantastic job on these? Sometimes other (female) decorators seem surprised that I “let” my husband help with cake or deliver cakes or even decorate or “trust” him to not mess things up, but let me tell you… it’s not a matter of “letting” him… I couldn’t do what I do without him. He’s excellent at supporting everything I do and stepping in to help out any and every time I ask – no matter the task! And I trust him without doubt – he cares as much about my business success as I do! He’s my best friend and number one fan… and I’m blessed beyond measure.
Sooo, do you have any questions (for him) about this cake or the cupcakes? Leave a comment and we’ll answer and help out if we can!
