Luau Cake

I made this cake for a friend's Luau Party.  It was a lot of fun to make and it's perfect for those backyard get-togethers.  All you need is some tiki torches and a few good friends and you have an instant good time.

I was inspired by another cake that I saw on Cake Central. I used a 12"x8"x2" pan for the base and then carved it to form the bodice, the boobs are made using both halves of the Wilton sports ball pan set. I decorated it with a coconut bra and lei that I purchased from the dollare store. It's frosted in buttercream using the triple star tip for the bodice and tip #5 for the grass skirt.

Diary of a Wimpy Kid

What better way to surprise a soon-to-be 10 year old that knows everything?  You plan a party a month before his actual birthday.  We did just that for my son and we had a great time!  We grabbed a few of our close family and friends and surprised him at the local movie theater during the opening weekend of the Diary of A Wimpy Kid Movie.  In honor of the occasion, I made a cake that was modeled after the books in the series.  A great time was had by all!

6 parts yellow + 1 part green = LIME

I made this cake for my bestie's birthday. I thought a lime cake would stand out against a white background. The cake is covered in fondant with lime and black accents. This was my first attempt at the fondant roses and making lime.
