Introduction: Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle Cake

Earlier this month my little friend had his 5th birthday and he has requested a Ninja Turtle cake with some Kinder Surprise Eggs hidden inside. So here is what I managed to make for him . . .

Step 1: Bake, Ice, Cover

For this cake I made a 9 inch chocolate cake, filled with orange flavoured buttercream. I then printed out Leonardo's face and used it as a template for cutting the cake into a desired shape. After that I iced the cake and covered it in green coloured ready to roll icing.

If you like you can have a look at my other instructables here and here where I go into more details about baking, cutting and covering cakes with icing.

Step 2: Cake Board

For the cake board mix black food colouring with the icing, roll it out and glue it to the board with a small amount of water. With the help of a ruler and leaf shaping tool make lines to create a wall effect.

Step 3: I Spy With My Little Eye

For the eyes mix the icing with some blue food colouring and cut out the eye mask using the template. Then cut out the eyes and glue them on with water.

Place two kinder surprise eggs on the board and cover them with two pieces of blue icing in a shape of a drop.

Step 4: Smile

Using the template cut out the smile and tongue and glue them on using water. Roll out a few long strings of black icing with a cake smoother and outline the eye mask and chin.

Step 5: Birthday Message

Print out the birthday message and place it on the cake board. With a needle poke holes around the outline of the letters. Mix icing sugar with a little bit of meringue powder, tiny amount of water and food colouring. Fill in the letters first with blue icing and then use black icing as an outline.

Step 6: Finishing Off

To finish off I purchased 6 pcs TMNT action figures, washed them and secure them on the cake board with black icing. I then pasted on blue ribbon around the cake board with double-sided tape for nicer finish.

Thank you for visiting my instructable & I hope this is useful ;)
