Turtle Birthday Cake

Here's my son's second birthday cake...

He was crazy about turtles at the time, so this one was a hit.

I baked the body/shell in a round pyrex bowl. (I think it took one cake recipe for the body and another for all the parts).
 The head was baked in a large muffin cup and the feet in regualr muffin cups.
I cut the bottom of each cupcake at an angle so they would tilt how I wanted.

I frosted the whole cake light green, then added the dark green with a star tip.
(oh, and peanutbutter M&Ms for eyes)

Then I couldn't waist the rest of the batter, so I made coordinating cupcakes.
