Well, here's the finished TMNT for my nephew! He loved it! So did his big brother and his mom & dad! Although I've been told the green fondant left some colorful side effects that the 3 & 4.5 year old boys loved sharing with their friends! Lol! Boys will be boys! icon_wink.gif

No. Those are a couple of toys he wanted. I thought about it though when I couldn't find them anywhere! Lol!

Ahh.. believe it or not, I couldn't find a Mickey toy figurine either. My customer wanted it on the cake (more use to her son after than a gumpaste figure), but I had no luck anywhere so ended up making Mickey instead. Great job on the cake! :)

Thank you!! You made Mickey from scratch? Wow! Did you make that giraffe from scratch too? (The one in your profile pic) What lettering did you use? I love it!!

Yup, I've uploaded the picture.. not sure if the link will work, but if it doesn't just check out my profile. My Mickey looks a bit silly tho, it's difficult to get him to look like the real thing! icon_redface.gif

Yes, I made the giraffe as well. The letters are made using FMM Tappits (Google it).. it's a cutter and they have it in various fonts. It's a bit tricky to use at the beginning, but you'll get the hang of it after a few tries (and lots of swearing, if you're anything like me icon_twisted.gif).

Thanks!!! I need to figure out how to do all this molding. I just started using fondant and gumpaste. The turtle cake was my first attempt. Any class or product suggestions?

Haha! When I first went to take a cake class, my reasoning was so I could frost a cake without swearing...as much! Lol!

Thanks!! I lightly pressed a rectangle cookie cutter into the top of the fondant. But if you don't have one, if you look at my first TMNT cake on this thread (the one without the motorcycle and leather head) that one I just used a ruler and a veining tool and free handed it. I didn't have my cookie cutter with that day, so my teacher suggested i try it that way. Almost killed me in the moment, since I'm a tad OCD, but I ended up liking that better cause I could make sure they were the correct proportions to alternate between vertical and horizontal. icon_wink.gif

The shine on top is just Wilton silver color mist. The silver crystals on the bottom are Wilton silver sprinkles. Hope that helps!! Good luck!

You're welcome! Good luck! Show me when it's done!! The boys will love it! And if they eat the fondant, they'll get a kick out if the turtles "side effects" the next day! Lol!! Boys! icon_wink.gif

Your cake is great! I really like the texture on your covered cake board,too. Is it from the Happy Birthday Impressions Mat?  The way it sits there with the rest, it looks like "street" texture and fits right in!  GOOD JOB!!

 

To avoid having such a thick "head" to eat all of fondant, you could shape them from Rice Krispie Treats, and then cover them with fondant.  Much more edible.

Yes it is. Thank you!!

My daughter and nephews really like fondant, so that's why I made the whole head fondant. I used the buttercream fondarific green for them, it tastes so yummy. Not my favorite for covering cakes, and not great if you want to make figures, since if doesn't ever really harden, but worked well for the heads. I'm doing a hulk fist for my friends sons cake topper, so that I'll def use rice crispy treats on!! Thanks!! icon_smile.gif
