My mom celebrated her birthday this year at the beach with her grandkids and I decided to make a beach-themed birthday cake for her. I looked at this site for ideas and this was the end result.

The pink beach towels were sticks of chewing gum and the sand was crumbled-up Nilla Wafers. It's difficult to make out in the picture, but I also made white caps so it would look as if the waves were breaking. I used my spatula to make the waves, and then I took a toothpick with white icing on it to make the white caps.

Everything seemed to go wrong while I was working on this cake, and it was not what I had originally planned, but I ended up being very pleased with how cute it turned out!

I got the idea for this Beach Birthday Cake from a magazine, but modified it to make a rectangular cake, the original was round and two tiers. I liked the flatter surface which allowed for more stuff on top. Another change: I lined the water feature with fruit roll-ups to give it a nice base for the jello water and also some depth of color.

I used crushed graham crackers for the sand and decorated Teddy Grahams with icing for the swimmers. You can probably guess the rest of the things. All was eatable. Served about 60. My daughter loved it!

This Beach Birthday Cake was so much fun to make. The seashells are all made from chocolate. The flip flops are cake cut out from my daughte's flip flops.

I traced them and used the paper to cut out the cake. They are iced with buttercream and decorated with fondant. The sand is vanilla wafers chopped finely in a freezer bag with a rolling pin. The water is just blue food coloring in piping gel that I carefully smoothed onto the cake.

This cake was made for my nephews birthday. I made a 13 X 9 white cake. I iced it with butter cream icing and tented half of the cake blue for the ocean. The sand is made from vanilla wafers that were crushed and placed on the other half of the cake. The towels under the umbrellas are fruit roll-ups, the fence is made with Popsicle sticks and the accessories on the cake were bought at Party City.

I incorporated several of the ideas from other cakes I saw on this website for a Beach Birthday Cake. Thanks so much to everyone for submitting their ideas! This is the best website.

This cake was for my daughter's 7th birthday party. I made a beach and ocean scene and used the some of her Pet Shop toys that fit the scene. It was a big hit!

My daughter turned 3 this year and I made her party on the beach, the kids loved it! I covered this Beach Birthday Cake with blue icing first, then made the doll, crab and palm tree from sugar paste (leaves with foam).

The 'sand' is Muscovado sugar. I added shark sweets and jelly beans for an extra touch. Got lots of praise.

nice cake
by: Julie

I think this is the "neatest" done cake in the listings for this category. Just perfect. Very clean. I am curious though. Is that brown sugar or graham cracker crumbs on the beach? I always wonder which would taste better.
Thank you for showing off your amazing cake. Good job!

Beach cake topping
by: Beach girl

I always use a combo of Graham crackers and light brown sugar. It's a nice contrast of light and dark brown color and it tastes good.
