Turtle Cake

I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving, I know I did. I went home to Atwater and spent time with my family. Unfortunately I could only stay for the day because I had to work the next day at 6:30 in the morning. Well anyways did you know that there was another day worth celebrating on Thanksgiving? The 26th of November was also national cake day, So to celebrate I made a turtle cake. It was actually a death by chocolate cake, but I made a turtle topping and poured it on top. Everything came out great and tasted wonderful. However there was one problem with my caramel sauce; it was a little on the thin side. But it turned out to not be a bad thing because it just soaked into the cake making the cake have a moist caramely top. Well I hope you get to enjoy this cake and I hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving and ate lots of great food. :)
