I started by hand sculpting the flamingo from a large sheet cake, after letting it partially thaw. It cuts the straightest that way. After a coat of butter cream, pink satin ice fondant. Flowers were cut out of different sizes of cookie cutters and then shaped on the thin foam square to soften the edges. The trimmed off pieces of cake we’re used to form the base of the tiki hut.
Two square pieces of cake were sandwiched together to form the base of the tiki hut. Some misshaped cake was piled on top to heighten the roof, followed by brown and green fondant (which was roughed up on the edges). Don’t forget to add vines and a door. I added butter cream to create feathers to the flamingo, and added disco dust to the entire cake to catch sparkle and shine for that extra WOW! You will want to make sure you have an extra large cake board so that you have plenty of room to “create.”
