Indulge your sweet tooth with this fabulous Turtle Cake.

If you were looking for “ninja turtle cakes” or a cake in the shape of a sea turtle, I’m sorry to have to disappoint you.

The Turtle Cake we offer here is a chocolatey, pecan, caramel delight named after Turtle Chocolates.

A rich dark chocolate cake, with the “turtle” elements of pecans, caramel, chocolate and a ganache for good measure. This is an easy Turtle Cake recipe too – no layers involved.

This great Turtle Cake recipe is from the always delicious Sugar Plum Blog.
