For my son’s birthday, I wanted to create a cake that had a pool theme.  I’m not very talented at making Jello (as my kids don’t enjoy the texture)  So that part was just for looks! It was relatively easy enough to make. I baked a 9×13 cake and frosted it with vanilla icing. I sprinkled graham crumbs on it, to get the sand look.

The base of the slide and the diving board were made of vanilla wafers. A rollup candy was the slide. I used Playmobil figures and toys for the rest. The Jello was put in a square Pampered Chef shallow dish. This served as the pool. The kids had the most fun taking the Playmobil people and diving them into the pool!
