I would make it all out of fondant. Easy peasy.
You could do a fbct or fondant.
Do you want it standing up or laying down?
Sheet or stacked cake?
I just assumed that it would be laying down Didn't think of making it to stand up.
Thanks for the advice. Actually it will be proped up kinda like a sign with flowers around it. If I did fondant, would I just hand cut all the different flower pieces? And if I do it that way, it won't be a smooth turtle. Any ideas how I could make it a smooth backed turtle? Could you maybe use white chocolate colored the different shades of pink?
You could always take it your local grocery store and have them scan it on a frosting sheet for you.
I would do one of two things. ....
Have it printed on a frosting sheet,
or make the turtle out of fondant, and stencil the flowers on. I am sure you can find a stencil of that flower at micheals or your local craft/hobby shop.
Hope that helps!
Let us know how it goes!
Very cute! What about a royal icing transfer? Then you could just copy the exact design and make it so it stands up.
Cakehelp did a pictoral - go to the 2nd pg of the topic to see it, don't click on the link in her first post.
The RI tutorial was very cool I may try and do that. If I did the fondant with a stencil, wouldn't the green color be to dart to stencil over with pinks? Sorry so many questions, this is my first cake for someone besides family and friends I wanna get it right =)
When I saw the pic I instantly thought of the body/shell of the turtle as a round or half a ball cake and the head and flippers as fondant add-ons. Cute cake. HTH.
