Heroes in a half-sheet…

So, my husband is like super talented when it comes to making cakes. He’s made R2-D2, Perry the Platypus, and the Captain America shield. For our daughter’s birthday, he tackled making Donatello from Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles popping out of the sewer.

The first thing he did was to create the manhole cover which he did with lots of white chocolate (almost two bags), a little bit of fondant, and some edible color spray.


Then, it was a lot of coloring and rolling out fondant, trimming of cake, carefully stacking the delicious goodies. He used a total of four 8″ round cakes (two for the hole, two for Donnie’s head).


The whole project took about three hours (minus cooking time) and the taste was delicious!

I make crafts. I geek out. Sometimes, I geek out about making crafts.

  1. That is awesome! I’m making a similar cake for my nephew next weekend. I’m curious how he made the ridges in the sewer lid? Did he first cover it in fondant and then indent, or is the pattern directly on the white chocolate? Thanks for your help!


    1. Thank you and good luck!

      What he did was use a white chocolate base, then cut out rectangles out of the fondant and placed them on the white chocolate (while it was still tacky so they would stay in place) to make it look like the sewer lid.
