Sea Turtle Cake by AsheryW Sea Turtle Cake by AsheryW
This was a caramel mud cake made for a friends going away party. I had made a base cake for it to sit on top of but it ended up a little too big, so at the party we cut up the base cake first but as for the turtle it didn't actually get eaten at the party so it was sent back home with my friend. A few days later I got a photo of the poor decapitated little thing 😕

***
I just want to say a huge thank you to all of you for the amazing response this cake has received. I truly appreciate it.
And a huge thank you to cakecrumbs for putting it up for a daily deviation. I'm honoured!

To answer some of your questions...
Yes... It is cake! Lol,
It took me 2 1/2 days to make if I remember correctly,
It tasted as good as it looked!
The shell was painted (not airbrushed)... You can see the stuff in the background
The sand is crushed Milk Arrowroot Biscuits

Sea turtles are bald and taste like beef.

mind blown. I thought it was a sculpture. My husband was at a bad angle for viewing and initially thought you had a roasted turtle on a cutting board, poor fellow. :lmao:

Very lovely work. I admire your skill. :)

Thats amazing! I'd be sad to eat it! At least you have pictures and how silly of your friend to show you it decapitated. I guess its like eating gummy bears, you dont want to but you just gotta!

Even if you don't know who she is, what she does. She is a real survivor. She is really a truly beautiful, strong and boldly courageous human being. If you can even offer 5 dollars you are showing your support in her incredibly difficult and inspiring journey. I admire her profoundly. Just read her story, it's so inspiring and heart breaking at the same time. I donated what I could.

"What's my opportunity here?' is a question I never cease asking myself. I am a woman who doesn't allow life's challenges to get in the way of my growth. In fact, I believe challenges are to be overcome in order to transform our lives and allow us all to find the joy that is our birthright. And I have been challenged in the last decade.

My belief was put to the test when I was diagnosed in 2002 with Multiple Sclerosis, then 18 months later with Stage 2 Parotid (Salivary) Gland Cancer. 'What's my opportunity here?' was the question that kept repeating itself. My back was subsequently operated on due to a completely extruded disc in 2010. In 2013 I slipped and fell on the ice and needed surgery in my hand due to a ruptured tendon. Also one of the main MS symptoms are many many migraines. At one point they were up to 25 a month. Thankfully they are now down to about 10. All of this ... has led to bills, some of which I am still paying off without rancor.

Now again my belief has been put to the test. On April 2nd I went back to the Hospital for back surgery again. This time needing a fusion of my spine. I spent 4 days in the hospital post surgery due to drainage tubes, IV's and pain management that could not be medically supervised at home. I am now home and bills are coming in, which doesn't allow for ease of healing due to stress. The stress of which has caused an MS relapse which has come in the form of severe vertigo. This doesn't make movement easy, which is crucial to my healing. One doesn't want to topple over after a back fusion, that's not such a good idea...

So what is my opportunity here? It's to acknowledge that I need help. Help with my bills. Once I am given the go ahead to go back to work it will be part time, and in conjunction with all my regular bills I won't be able to pay my previous doctors bills let alone my new ones. I also acknowledge how so very grateful I am for being allowed the time to get well and for having those around me who love me. Yet I need help. And if you are able to do so I would be so grateful to all of you for the rest of my healthy life. So.... Thank You, Thank You from the bottom of my heart. I am honored and humbled by your support.

With All My Love,
~Sarah "
