My daughter's best friend was having a Hawaiian theme birthday, so I decided to make the Hula Girl Cake and came up with this Hula Girl. I used one 8" round cut to the bottom of skirt size, and the Wilton Classic Wonder Cake mold for the Hula Skirt, it comes with the doll.
I used chocolate icing for the "coconut bra". Used the grass tip for the skirt and small drop flower tip for the flowers on the skit as well as the blue bottom and bra, also added some lei flowers on her wrists with the same tip. Used green food coloring for grass skirt and sky blue and hot pink food coloring for all of the drop flowers. you can add brown sugar around the bottom for the sand.
This was my 2nd custom cake I have ever made, check out my 1st custom cake under Hannah Montana Guitar cakes. I also do other cakes to order at reasonable prices if you live within an hour of my house which is in Byron, Ga.
I made this Hula Dancer Birthday Cake for my daughter's 8th birthday. It is a chocolate cake with chocolate filling and covered with homemade fondant. I used two pans, one ten inches round for the base, and the other shaped like a cone. I sliced the cake into three layers and filled it with chocolate filling .
The hula skirt was made by using a pasta machine and stuck the fondant pasta one by one, then I used air brush with food colouring to paint the skirt with skin colour. I made the necklace from cut paper flowers and cut straws. For the base cake air brushed with pink colour and added some sugar flowers. Made them by rolling the fondant thin and cut it with different shape of flowers cookies cutter, then shaping the petals to a live like flowers and also spray painted them with air brush. The happy birthday sign I printed on the computer and cut.
My daughter was very happy to have this cake for her hula theme birthday party.
We were hosting my daughter's 3rd birthday party and we were having a family luau. For the Hula Girl Birthday Cake I wanted a hula dancer. I made a doll cake using the Wilton doll cake pan and mounting it on a single round layer cake (to make it taller).
Using a single hole tip with yellow icing I covered the entire bottom with strands of frosting (grass) to create a grass skirt. I added simple flowers for a lei and decoration around the waist on the Barbie and used milk duds (cut in half) for the coconuts.
I also made cupcake cones to look like palm trees (not shown in this picture, but also on this site). For the Palm Tree cupcake cones: I made cup cakes in ice cream cones and used a leaf tip to mimic palm fronds. Then added milk duds for coconuts. I added sugar in the raw as sand, around the skirt of the hula girl.
This Hula Cake Design was a very easy and fun cake to make. I used two 8x8 cake pans and stacked them as you can see. I frosted the entire cake in homemade buttercream white frosting. I used brown sugar as the sand and piping gel with blue food coloring as the water. The flip flops and tress were purchased from a cake supply store.
The cupcakes were just as simple. Just topped exactly the same way but embellished with more items from the cake supply store.
The cake was very easy but a very big hit! Sometimes simple works the best. However, when I make another hula or beach cake I will either put brown sugar on the sides of the cake or use another color than white just for different effect.
I made this Hula Girl Cake for my granddaughter's preschool party. I used a large round cake pan and a smaller one for the top. It was a double layer cake for each size.
Using a Wilton star tip I tried to give the effect of Hawaiian leis on the sides of the cakes using different colors. Using a Wilton grass tip I decorated the tops of the cakes. I then added piped on some tropical flowers and placed small plastic palms.
The cake is topped off the a dashboard "Hula Girl" found at my local auto parts store.
