I made this beachcake for a friend who loves the beach. I made a rectangular sponge cake then iced half with blue buttercream and the other half with plain buttercream.
I covered the latter with crushed vanilla wafers then decorated it with milky way magic stars and white icing flowers. I decorated the 'sea' with gummy crocodiles and eels and milky way magic stars then sprinkled crushed meringues on to look like the surf in the waves.
I made a model of my friend out of royal icing which I rolled in orange food dye and icing sugar and used yellow icing for her hair, red gummy sweets for a bikini, a cola bottle as a drink and an inflated waterballon on a cocktail stick as a ballon. I finished of by using HAPPY BIRTHDAY candles.
It was a very easy cake to make and my friend loved it!
My daughter turned 11 and wanted a beach birthday cake to go with her birthday party on 7 Mile beach in Grand Cayman where we live.
We went to the candy store and found some really cool chocolate rocks and I built the cake from that. I wanted some palm trees but because the beach is so hot I wasn't sure how to make them so they wouldn't melt then I found the answer right in my fish bowl.
I got the palm tree ornament out of the fish bowl and washed it and let it sit in the sun for a few days. It was perfect because it did not weigh a lot and the proportions were great. I used crushed vanilla wafers for the sand and it looked just like the sand at the beach.
This was such a great idea that I found on here by combining the best ideas from this website into one cake, it was super easy to make. Started out with 2- 9 x 13 Vanilla box cakes, in between the layers I added chocolate fudge icing, on top is homemade butter creme icing, the ocean is butter creme icing with 3 squirts of blue food coloring. The sand is brown sugar and we bought the umbrellas from the local party store, beach blankets are airheads and chocolate chip teddy grams for the little people. Regular mint life savers with green decorator's tip store bought icing. My nephew loved it sooo much, and the whole luau pool party theme that we had to go along with it!
My instructions for this island beach cake were 'Summer of 69'. The cake is milk chocolate fudge with buttercream icing. All the decorations are fondant. To make the beach I first iced the cake with pale brown icing then sprinkled with brown sugar. The water was blue b/c with green waves and white b/c tips.
To make the palm trees I got lollipop stick and covered them in fondant. I then cut lots of triangles out and placed them. The leaves were hand cut and then laid over a hand towel tube over night. I attached them with green royal icing.
A very easy and fun cake to make. Thanks for looking.
This Beach Scene Birthday Cake is a three layer yellow cake with buttercream icicng. I made white chocolate shells from molds and lined the cake.
I used a plastic castle for decoration (we already had). The Ariel characters are from a sticker book, the cardboard part. I cut them out and glued toothpicks on back and stuck them in the cake. I used crushed graham crackers for the sand.
For this homemade vacation on the beach cake I used a yellow butter cake with a raspberry filling. Butter cream for the frosting. Piping gel for the water color, I also used Wilton blue color mist to accentuate the water color. The color for the flowers and the borders are Wilton regular colors. To get a more intense tone, I mixed some colors to make them more vibrant.
