This Cake was ordered by a dear friend of mine to celebrate her mom's 81st birthday. It's a half sheet cake - half chocolate and half vanilla filled and covered with butter cream icing.
The beach towel and flip flops are made with gum paste and are edible. The trees and fishes are not edible. Have used brown sugar for sand and have scribbled "81" on sand. This was my friend's only request - to make it a beach theme and have "81" scribbled on the sand.
The best part of this cake was making those pink flip flops to give this cake a little whimsical look. I really enjoyed making this cake. I was invited to this party and got such great reviews and feedback about this cake which made my day. Needless to say, the birthday girl absolutely loved this cake and was proudly showing it off to her family and friends.
