Flip Flops Cake

Flip Flops Cake

I made this flip flops cake for my sister-in-law's 30th luau-themed surprise birthday party. I made a cinnamon chocolate cake and white chocolate cream cheese icing. Basically, I baked the cake in a 9" x 13" pan. After baking, I turned the cake out onto a board to let it cool, and I froze it. Freezing makes carving the cakes easier.

While the cake was in the freezer, I traced two flip flops on waxed paper in pencil--making sure I had one left and one right. When the cake was frozen, I took it out and used my waxed paper tracing sheet to carve out the flip flops.

I crumb-coated both cakes, froze them again, and gave them their final "top coat" of icing. I used fruit leather for the straps, although something else might have been better like licorice, because the straps did not want to "sit up" on the cakes. I decorated the sides with Skittles candies.

It was fun to make, and people seemed to enjoy it!

This Flip-Flop Birthday Cake I saw made on a TV show but not with fondant, but since I love fondant so much I thought I’d give it a try. The cake got it shape from cutting a cardboard cut out of the shape of the flip-flop on my foot.

I made a regular rectangle sheet cake then cut out the shape. I then covered the entire cake with chocolate frosting. I have the bottom of the flip-flop with purple fondant, and the top with pink. I then rolled out 2 strings of yellow fondant and twisted them together for a cute trim (and to cover up where the purple and pink edges didn’t meet). I then got some store bought flowers and fruity twizzlers for the thong part.

It was a little hard to have the yellow twisted fondant stay on the edges of the cake, but where it slipped down I filled in the spaces with yellow icing.

Homemade Flip Flops Cake Design

This Flip Flops Cake Design was my first attempt at cake decorating in about 12 years. I wanted to surprise my daughter for her 13th birthday so I started looking for ideas on line. I didn't even have a theme, but I ran across a pattern for this flip flops cake on the Wilton website and thought it would be cute for a 13 year old girl.

I make a chocolate cake from scratch and then carved it using the pattern. I tinted some buttercream icing teal and then came the hard part because I didn't know about crumb coating at that time. After some extreme frustration, I put the cakes in the freezer for about 30 minutes and then managed to get them iced relatively well.

For decorating, I used fruit roll ups for the "rubber" tops and silk daisies to make them cute. I put skittles around the "sole" of the shoes.

Homemade Flip Flop Birthday Cake Idea

I made these cakes for my twin girls' thirteenth birthday. They are cute and easy to make. I baked each cake in a 9x13 pan and froze them after they cooled. I traced a flip-flop onto cardstock to make a template. The template made cutting the cake easier. Then I placed the template on each cake and cut around it. I colored butter cream icing and iced each cake.

Then I piped colored icing around the top and bottom edges of the cakes. I decorated the outer edge of each cake with Skittles and M&M’s. I used a fruit roll-up for the strap and placed a silk flower at the top. Hope you like my homemade flip flop birthday cake idea.
