Turtle cake

This Turtle Cake is my very first marshmallow fondant animal cake. I made it for my daughters 12th birthday. She loves the color green and likes turtles and rainbows.

I took a store bought white cake mix and separated it in small bowls and colored each one different, then layered each color in 2 separate pans so the cake, when cut, looks like a rainbow.

Then I covered the cake in buttercream frosting and for the turtle I used different colors of green, and made lady bugs, worms and flowers out of the fondant and royal icing for the grass around the turtle, thanks for looking, hope you like it.
