Mikey Ninja Turtle Birthday Cake

This past weekend was Bella’s 8th birthday. The one thing she wanted was to have a Ninja Turtle birthday cake. So I started searching around online for different cakes that I could have an idea of what to tell our “cake lady“, as my son calls her! Here is our Mikey cake:


Bella’s eyes lit up when she saw her cake. It is EXACTLY what she wanted. But I had a surprise for her…but she wouldn’t know what that surprise was until we cut into the cake…


Best. Cake. Ever!
