Homemade Luau Birthday Cake

Homemade Luau Birthday Cake

This Luau birthday cake was inspired by a cake submitted on this site by Becky Z.
of North Miami, FL. I used some elements from her cake to create this birthday cake for my daughter's 6th birthday which had a "tiki/luau" theme.

I used a 1/2 sheet cake, frosted it the blue very loosely to make it look like waves. Created fondant flowers about a week before the cake (took that long for them to dry hard) out of pre-colored rolled fondant found at Michaels. Used a flower cutter and formed them in a curve by putting them into old plastic Easter egg shell halves and just left them to dry until hard. Add them around the perimeter of the cake along with some piping to finish the look.

I made the tiki hut out of tooth picks and a butter container (upside down) then colored it brown with paint. Ordered hula plastic surfers and girls online along with the palm trees, etc. The island was another round cake that I trimmed to be rounded and frosted in fudge and added crushed nuts to look kind of like sand.

The cake decorations that were used on this cake can be ordered via internet from www.babykakes.com I just received my order from them in a very timely fashion and I am very pleased with the products. Good luck to all who are looking for these decorations b/c you cannot find them in the stores.

This cake is the coolest luau cake I've ever seen and trust me I've seen a lot of good looking luau cakes. I was wondering could you bake one for me? Pleeeease!Im having aluau party and I desperately need this cake and me and my mom cant make it because we've already spent to much money on luAU. I'll pay you, just not to much.

Fondant flowers
by: Neecie

Just a hint : if you make the flowers as she described, {Great Job, by the way!!} then let them air dry draped over the outside of the same plastic Easter egg halves, you will find the drying time reduced considerably. I love this cake,thanks for the detailed instructions.

Thanks for all the comments!

First off so sorry to everyone for not checking on this post of my cake (I kind of forgot about it!) So I know I'm late responding but I wanted to thank the one that helped with where to get the surfer people - I did have to order them online. Also, for those wanting to know about the tiki hut I just used a small butter tub upside down and hot glued toothpicks all around it, then hot glued toothpicks at the top of the tub at an angle so they all met in the middle to make the roof. Then used my kids watercolor set to give it the brown color. Have fun with this one! Thanks!

I love this cake and so does my soon to be 9 year old daughter. I want to do this cake for her, but am having trouble finding the decorations; not the tiki hut, I read how to do that and have a different idea I am going to do for it. I need the people and trees. Can you tell me where you got these?

Thanks!
