Hello,

my son wants a TMNT cake for his birthday. I'd love to make a 3d upright turtle, but I've never done a carved cake before. can I have some advise please?

Thank you.

Practice!!! I did my sons cake last year of a monster truck because I didnt want to pay the price, come to find out it cost about the same from me doing it as what I was quoted...But I had fun doing it and now I,m starting to make cakes for other people.

I would start by drawing something that you want and then go from there. Decide if you want a full body or just head,etc.. The bigger you make it the more support you will need to hold it up. You'll have a good time as long as yu have patience and he will love it no matter what.

I did a carved Thomas the Train cake for my son's birthday. It turned out great due in part to advise I found here on carving cakes. Do a search but the top tips I found were to use a relatively dense cake and freeze the cake then carve it frozen. Another 3-d cake I made was a frog - I used the Wilton Stand-up Bear pan as the base and modified the shape by carving it and icing it. Perhaps that might also work as a base for TMNT? Good luck and have fun.
