Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Have Made A Comeback!

So, I was super excited about doing this cake, as I was an avid fan of TMNT when I was growing up. I probably had 50 different turtle action figures, and several cartoon movies. Anyways, when my co-worker asked about making this cake for her son's 5th birthday, I was like, DEFINITELY! So, this is an 8 inch strawberry cake with buttercream icing and fondant decorations. This is the first strawberry cake that I have sold to a client, and did a test-run last week. It was fabulous if I may say so without sounding arrogant! :)

I made each of the heads individually, and had to tint and roll out each of the colored bandanas. I cut out the eye holes and then filled in the eyes with icing. The logo and manhole are also fondant.

I have a customer who specifically asked for this cake for her son's birthday. I just wanted to ask for your permission to recreate this cake.
