Coolest Hula Girl Birthday Cake

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.

  2. I was googling for a hula doll cake for my 14yr old party. she always wanted ” doll cake” but then would back out and ask for something else. this year she’s having a luau and thinks it’s just hula doll cupcakes, I wanted to surprise her since my grandma ( her great grandma 81yr young) really wanted to do this every year, your posting this cake is a answer from God, we will be using it as a pattern thanks so much for sharing!
