Hawaiian Beach Cake

Posted by Jennifer at 11:31 AM
Skylar turned one yesterday with a Hawaiian themed party. Marie, her mother, was really excited about throwing her a 1st birthday and had decked out the backyard to match the theme with Hawaiian decorations. We were joking that although Skylar won't remember the party, Marie will have the pictures to prove it!

The top tier was a cookies'n'cream cake (sweet white cake layered with chocolate buttercream and crushed oreos) and the bottom tier was coconutty cake (just what it sounds like... coconut cake layered with coconut buttercream and coconut flakes). All of the decorations are handmade with marshmallow fondant. There are crabs, fish, octopi (I like to think that's plural for octopus), starfish, flowers, seahorse, seashells, and palm trees around the cake. Then, I sprinkled brown sugar along to edges to look like sand on the beach and on the ocean floor.

Along with the main cake, Marie wanted a smash cake all for Skylar that matched the Hawaiian beach theme. I wanted to keep the decorations simple when compared to the larger cake. It's also a cookies'n'cream cake covered in marshmallow fondant. I hope she just ripped it apart!

How do you think the 1 year old did with the fondant? Isnt that a little hard to get through? These are really cute cakes!
