My little sister's cake


Hi everyone,

Today I have a cake to show you, I made it last weekend for my sister birthday. My sister has Rett Syndrome a disorder of the nervous system that leads to developmental reversals, especially in the areas of expressive language and hand use. Some how a long time ago we decided we loved turtle, and since then, we always brought her turtle things. So my choice of cake design was obvious...

The cake was decorated with fondant and the precious help of some cookie cutters (eyes and flowers). Underneath all this fondant, is a thin coat of chocolate icing and a very tender banana cake. since I didn't have a lot of time I opted for a very simple version of the turtle : hidding.



Since I had some batter left I also made cupcakes with creamcheese chocolate frosting and a fondant flower exactly like the ones on the turtle.



She was really pleased with it

Happy birthday baby sister!!


Have a nice stampin' weekend !!!
