Tacky Sweater Cake

You know those "Tacky/Ugly" Sweater parties that are popular around the holidays?! I finally got to make a cake for one!!

There is no fondant on this cake, the "lights" and gold details were large sprinkles, everything else was icing (helped sell the "stitched" look of the sweater)

There was a large round base cake, and a sweater shaped second layer. SO MUCH FUN!

TMNT Birthday Cake

A Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles cake to include ALL 4 turtles!

The middle there is a man-hole cover, you know, because they live in the sewers?! Seemed more interesting than another pizza.
