Turtle cake

This one is a 2-layer chocolate cake with a chocolate tortoise (okay, I call it a turtle cake because it sounds better than a tortoise cake but wow that’s so unscientific). I used my new icing tips for the flowers, and they worked great! The head and legs are made out of chopped up cupcakes I had leftover from a previous baking session. It was my first time trying a basketweave, and my icing was too thick, so it’s a little jittery. But not too bad!
