TURTLE POWER! Having grown up in the 80′s with only a brother to be entertained by, I was “forced” to play with his Ninja Turtles, and “forced” to watch the TV show a time or two! I guess that was payback for making him play Barbies and My Little Pony!
When I heard there was a new 2014 movie coming out, I knew I had to make a cake- for remembrance sake! I can’t say I’ve kept up on the on goings of the Turtles since the 80′s and while making the video for this cake, I had to research which Turtle was which; Michelangelo is the orange mask, Donatello the blue, Raphael the red one, and Leonardo wears the purple mask. Don’t ask me which one has which weapon though! I obviously didn’t pay much attention to role play when we were with Splinter in sewer! I don’t think it’s a toy or series that really warrants much deep thought- why are turtles running around on two legs being ninja’s in the sewer?
I think this is a perfect cake and cake pop idea for those of our viewers that have been asking for it, as well as “boy” themed cakes ideas. For this cake I use TMNT cake pops to place into the top of the cake, and they provide a fun little extra for four special party goers! I hope all the children of the 80′s and the kids of today (a whole new generation that loves the Turtles), enjoy this cake idea!
Turtles in a half shell!
