Painted Turtle Cake by theshaggyturtle Painted Turtle Cake by theshaggyturtle
A cake with turtles on it!

I used marshmallow fondant for both covering the cake and sculpting the turtles. I then took some food dye, added water, and painted designs on the cake. :D

I love the food coloring-as-paint idea and you pulled it off very well. Sometimes less is more: the two turtles were enough sculptures for this cake, but the paint filled in the blank spaces nicely. You have a very good eye for this type of thing :)

It really didn't take that long since the designs are really simple. I'm glad you like the turtles! They were a little hard to make because the fondant didn't want to cooperate with me at all!

Amazing! What kind of food colouring? I'm not sure if I used the ones I have that are all watery..whether they'd work....?

Thanks! :glomp: The food coloring I used was a more concentrated gel type, so I was able to add water to get the consistency I wanted.

Looks great. Can I ask you how you make your marshmallow fondant? I've always wanted to do cakes with lil moulded things as designs on top and never really knew how.
