Today, at 9:24 am...I started a cake.
No problem, plenty of time. I was only making a normal sea turtle cake...
The shell was white chocolate with a couple milk chocolate pieces melted (added green food coloring for the top part of the shell) and cooled on parchment paper. I poured a thin layer and when it was set, but not hard, I cut it in the shell shapes with a pizza cutter. I liked how that chocolate worked out. I tried one batch of chocolate over an overturned bowl to create a shell shape, but I couldn't cut it up like I did with the green, so had to chuck that batch.
For a 'last minute' cake, it was pretty good.
Continuing with the turtle theme, we celebrate Little Man's 6th birthday at the Buffalo Zoo with Timmy the Turtle:
With a very happy boy!
