It's a Turtle Sand Castle Baby Shower Cake all edible

Made for a friend’s Under the Sea themed Baby shower “It’s a Turtle” comes from the fact at her first scan her baby looked like a turtle so was thus nicknamed by all Turtle since

I used Laura from Krazy Kool Cakes Design tutorial for the turtle hers was in polymer clay, but I made it in modelling chocolate & altered it slightly but link to her tutorial can be found here(it’s awesome) https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.436262786433260.101526.174592105933664&type=3

cake is covered with a 1:3 ratio of fondant & modelling chocolate as I was playing to see what it came out like on a cake is amazing to use & much better in humid conditions…also tastes much better, i wish I had textured it more but cake was done in a hurry at midnight so my eyes were a bit tired after a 17 hour day & didn’t think straight

Driftwood, seahorse, coral, flowers, starfish(blue & green for a boy) & shells are all sugarpaste & brown sugar added for sand effect
