For this Ocean cake, I started with a Costco cake with simple blue and white border, but I wanted blue frosting. Wilton’s makes a food coloring spray in lots of different colors, perfect for coloring the simple store bought cake (Spray color found at Michael’s).
I then used graham cracker crumbs for the beach, gummy candies, candy rocks, and sour apple straws and green fruit roll-ups for the seaweed (Most from the bulk food section). The last thing I added was blue gel bubbles to give it a little more dimension.
It took about 20 minutes and it turned out great. My daughter loved it!
