Tortoise Grooms Cake

The groom has raised tortoises since he was little. I used several real life pictures for reference. I used the oval pan set for this one, all but the smallest. Then carved it down. Red velvet cake with buttercream filling. The shell and body parts are all greenish black tinted fondant and then painted details and finish. I put a reasonably thick layer of fondant on it so I could get the raised portions of the shell by etching it with a skewer. He was lots of fun!
