How to make turtle shell?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I have a picture of a turtle cake that I'd like to try. I'm not quite sure how they got the shape of the shell. Does anyone have any ideas? I was thinking, maybe a couple of sheet cakes stacked and then carved. But I think I might waste a lot of cake if I do it that way. Ideas anyone?

Thanks in advance!

You can choose:
Your idea - sheet cake. I would make paper templates, try to get them on the pan and try not to waste any cake.
Or - Bake in 1/2 ball pan or pyrex bowl and carve the sides
Or - combine both

You can use the "wasted" cake - start making cake balls, but use this "material" to give your cake a better form or give a base to the legs. It all depends of the size you want.

Thank you majka_ze. I was also thinking of the ball pan too!

Thanks again.
