I took two boxes of the Betty Crocker golden vanilla. I wanted a white cake so I could make it orange with food coloring because my son’s favourite color is orange.

I baked it in a huge metal pan for about 25 minutes. I took two containers of whipped cream cheese frosting and added blue food coloring to it. I iced it with the blue. I took vanilla wafers and crushed up to make the sand. I took green piping frosting and made the seaweed.

I took my son’s squirt toys and I put safety pins in the bottom to stick down in the cake (only because it was late at night and I didn’t want to go out for toothpicks). Then I used the orange icing for the lettering. I did all the decorations in lime green, blue and orange so that it matched the cake colors.
