Breast Cancer Foundation Cake!

I made this cake last weekend at PlanetCake 104.
The cake is a 12" 9" and 6" Rounds with Sugar orchids.
Being such a large cake without a real "purpose" I decided to cut the cake up and take it to work and for a gold coin donation people can get a piece of cake and all the money will go to the Breast Cancer Foundation!

Murtle the Turtle!

This week I decided to challenge myself a little with a 3d Sculpted cake...

I discovered many new things with this cake!
1. Ganache is Amazing compared to buttercream! haha I shall not use buttercream again in a hurry and anything sculpted will definitly have ganache!
2. Scales are time consuming!!!

Oh no! Turtle cut!! mmm tasty turtle!
