Just made a 3D turtle cake. We made it look as realistic as possible. This is suppose to be a red foot tortoise. The body of the turtle is the cake that is covered in fondant. The cake flavor was vanilla filled with vanilla buttercream. The head, arms, legs, and tail were made out of rice krispy and covered in fondant.The entire turtle was painted with an air brush machine and we used various colors to give it that natural effect. The board was decorated with buttercream to make it look like grass and was also air brushed with different shades of green.
Here are a few pictures that show some of the different steps when making the turtle. Enjoy! 🙂
