I have done a cake similar to this, it had the beach scene, but a big beach ball on top. I did like that cake, and I had to stick with the theme of the party. So I thought
I would revisit this cake, but change a few things.
I had the crabs and the life preservers on the last one. But if you have a beach scene, you've got to have a beach towel. I added some surf boards, and some palm trees. My little Reese said, "mom I think you need a little umbrella." So on one went, I have to say I usually don't like inedible things on my cakes, but I think it looked cute.
I love those little crabs.
I thought for awhile about how to make the palm trees. I used Pocky, which if you read my spider cake post, (from last October,) it explains that is a a Japanese cookie stick covered in chocolate. It worked great.
I know there's not a lot to this cake. But it's still a cute little cake. I believe this one was my super yummy white cake, with orange creamcicle frosting.
Now I have done a beach ball before, but it was rice crispy. This time of course, it's all cake. I have to say, cake is a lot easier to cover smoothly than rice crispy. So this one turned out to be a lot less problematic than my last beach ball.
Fun, cute, and yummy. That's my kind of beach toy.
Here's the next cake, in the set of six I made for the "fish party." I really liked the way it turned out.
The cake is my yummy chocolate cake marbled with white cake. I covered it in Orange Creamcicle frosting, then patted graham cracker crumb all over it. The little tower is a sugar cone covered in fondant and rolled in crumbs as well.
I personally got to eat this one, and was pleasantly surprised at how yummy it was. And I think it turned out real cute.
Sorry if you've missed me. I'm hoping there are enough people that check this blog, to miss me. Our laptop had a mishap. But my husband has gotten it all fixed so I'm back in business. I haven't been slacking off, in fact the oposite. This is one of six cakes I made in one day, last week.
Now I know you might be thinking, "have I seen this cake before?" Well, kind of. I did a very similar cake about a year ago. He was a little orange fish, with turquoise lips and fins. So why make another one, you ask? Well for one, I thought it was cute. For two, the theme was fish, and if you're making six fish themed cakes you need a big fish.
So the changes I made in this cake were the scales, and color mostly. The other cake did not have scales, and I thought this added something different, and was cute. This was a super yummy, moist, Pumpkin Chocolate Chip cake, with a whipped chocolate ganache filling and frosting, covered in, of course, marshmallow fondant.
