      OH. WOW. I have to show this to my son. On second thought, he's going to demand one, and I can't do that!

      So awesome!! I'd like to copy this for my son's 6th birthday! Can you give me some advice/ directions? Did you make your own fondant?

      Can I ask what size pan you used? I am making this for my son's birthday this weekend, but don't think my 8" square pan is big enough.

      This is a 9" square so you will probably be ok with an 8.

      NinoLoren The red and black are purchased fondant and the blue and white I made. I printed out pictures of the ninja's faces to get the eyes right for each character. I cut out the eye opening from a triangle shaped piece, then added strips of fondant to get the fabric look.

      Thank you!! How many cake layers did you use?

      Can you tell me how many layers that cake is? It looks tall!

    10. Cake Maniac 60 months ago | reply

      It is 3 layers of cake I believe, but about 4" tall in total. I am making another today and I am going to use 4 x 1" layers to do it.

      Did you also make the fondant for the skin? I wonder if that is a hard color to find...

    12. Cake Maniac 59 months ago | reply

      Aggie67 Yes, i believe it is Wilton Golden Yellow.

      I love this! I have recently started doing cakes & I had the one for this weekend requested ninjago & he loved this pic. Im just learning to work with fondant so could you give me some advice? did you use gumpaste glue to get everything to stick (eyes & etc).

    14. Cake Maniac 59 months ago | reply

      awtwcw1 I do use gumpaste glue to put on the eyes and eyebrows and to stick the extra strips on to make them look like fabric. I also use a little glue between the different colors to keep the seam nice and no icing peaking through.
