Ninja Turtles is a very popular theme for birthday parties, but not all cakes are suitable for this theme! Why? Well, if you have any doubt about it you should consider why on earth a cake is designed in the shape of a Ninja Turtle! When you think about why this shape has become so popular, you will begin to realize why it is one of the top cake decoration ideas!
The Ninja Turtle has become almost iconic. It is featured in a lot of movies and cartoon shows. For example, in the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie TMNT, it was shown that the mutts’ diet was primarily composed of cake! The Ninja Turtles became so popular that, in the late nineties, there was even a line of toys based on the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.
So why do we want to decorate a cake in the shape of a Ninja Turtle? There are many reasons! Perhaps you work in an office where you deal with people who hide behind their masks! Or maybe you are an avid collector of Ninja paraphernalia and would like to show off your collection to your friends! Who knows!
Ninja Turtles Cake Decoration
Whatever your motivation is, you can be sure that there are several different ways to go about cake decorating a Ninja Turtle cake. I am going to give you a few pointers that will help you get started – and these tips will ensure that you make a tasteful and stylish cake. Do not be afraid to try things yourself – you may find them to be a little quirky! You will soon come to appreciate the effort that you have put into cake decorating.
When it comes to cake decorations there are two main schools of thought. The first is to base your cake decorations around a specific ninja turtle. For example, if you were making a Ninja Turtle birthday cake for a boy you could base the cake decoration around that particular character. Alternatively, you could use this as an opportunity to teach children about the importance of giving respect to others.
A Much Ado
Another option is to base your cake decoration on the Ninja’s mask. Again, I would recommend using brown as a base color for this technique. Then you could use green and red to really make the Ninja Turtle look as good as possible. Don’t forget to take into consideration the character’s sandals, because this can add a great deal of fun to the cake. My personal favorite is the little Ninjas stepping out from under the sandals!
Once you have selected the base color for the cake and have decided on the Ninja Turtles cake topper, it is time to start thinking about what to decorate the rest of the cake in. If your child has asked you to help her with this task then it is a great opportunity to teach children about creativity. You can draw a rough sketch of what the cake will look like. Then when baking it, you can just fill in the outline and you can add all kinds of neat things to make it look like the Ninja Turtle that you have drawn. If she has asked you to do something else, such as adding a ninja turtle design to her cupcake, then it is a great opportunity to show your child how much imagination and creativity are possible.
Remember, the Ninja Turtles cake decoration is a chance for you and your child to create a unique cake together. This will be a real learning experience for you and your child, so don’t rush it. Take your time and enjoy the process! After a little bit of effort, you will have a cake that is uniquely yours and designed with your child’s own input!
