These cakes are so cute and perfect for anyone, they’re a great addition to any party! The great thing about this cake is that you can use the same idea and make a lot of other different shaped animal cakes too. It’s cute, simple to make and it’ll be a hit at your event.
For this Turtle Cake you will Need:
– An oven safe bowl – Muffin/cupcake tray. – Muffin liners – A box of cake mix and the ingredients to make the cake – Green and Black icing food color – Googly eyes made of icing – Buttercream Icing – Cake Tray – Icing Tips
First, butter your oven-safe bowl really well! Then line your muffin trays with your cupcake liners.
Once your cupcakes and cake are baked let them cool. Once they are at room temperature you can take the cake out of the bowl and flip it upside down. This is your turtle’s body!
Next, take two cupcakes out of your tray. Cut the top of the cupcake off and then cut that top in half. These are your turtle’s legs and arms!
Now you’re going to get your icing together and mix in a little coloring. I used Wilton’s Icing Color named Kelly Green for the turtle’s body.
What you’re going to do is star-tip this entire cake. Yes, every inch of this cake. Just squeeze your icing bag and dab it all around.
