CAKE RECIPE FOR BEACH CAKES
Family Fun created a "Hawaiian Cake and their recipe follows." This cake will make a big splash at your next luau or tropical-themed party.
- 1 baked 13- by 9- by 2-inch cake
- 2 1/2 cups blue frosting
- 1/4 cup white frosting
- 1-cup graham cracker crumbs
- Candy rocks
- Birthday candles
- Plastic Hawaiian dancers
- Candy flower sprinkles
- Plastic palm trees
- Fruit Stripe gum (surfboards)
- Plastic figures
- LifeSavers (inner tubes)
- Sour tape, cut into 1-inch lengths (beach blankets)
- Paper parasols
- Plastic dolphin or gummy fish
Lightly coat the entire cake with a thin layer of blue frosting. Swirl extra blue frosting on two-thirds of the cake to create the ocean with waves and a curvy shoreline. Add whitecaps by squirting white frosting through a pastry bag.
To make the sandy beach, sprinkle graham cracker crumbs on the remaining third of the cake (the crumbs will stick to the thin layer of frosting). Next, let your kids help you turn the cake into a bustling beach. Arrange a circle of candy rocks around a candle bonfire. Add Hawaiian dancers, a candy flower path, plastic palm trees, Fruit Stripe gum surfboards, plastic swimmers, LifeSavers tubes, sour tape beach blankets, and paper parasols. Don't forget to stock the ocean with edible and decorative sea creatures.
Here's the recipe and instructions for a fun "Fish Cake." If you're looking to create a bit of a splash at your party, nothing says wow like a great cake. This colorful fish cake would be a perfect addition to an under the sea type of party or perhaps a party that has the theme of a mermaid or luau, the beach and of course anything relating to a fish theme.
