I think I spent 6 hours on this cake. I'm just happy it's done and I didn't have to pull an all nighter. Everything is edible, kudos to you ladies who make a lot of carved cakes.

Would you mind terribly to just post the instructions for this cake? I mean it's awesome and I'm sure that I wouldn't be the only one to appreciate the effort.

I'm SOO impressed!

Y'all people who work with fondant are real artists. I'm just a good ole' fashioned butter cream lady myself...

Mac icon_smile.gif I'll post instructions and patterns, I really didn't think anyone would be interested in a turtle tutorial so I didn't bother. knoxcop1 I still go round and round with buttercream. *laff* Getting buttercream smooth is just as challenging.
