Hi ashcake,
I've done many flip flop cakes and they are very easy. Bake a sheet cake and cut out the shape of each flip flop using a template. I used my own flip flop and outlined it on a piece of paper to make the template. Often times it helps to freeze the cakes for a while before cutting to shape.

I crumb coat my cakes, then frost in buttercream and pipe on my designs. Some people use fondant. I have used fruit roll ups or fondant to make the straps. And sometimes I use fondant accents like flowers too.

I like to add crushed graham crackers to make "sand" and add chocolate candy sea shells too.

Hope that helps.
KimAZ

Thanks, I hadn't thought about making a templete out of my own flip flops. Duh! I guess I was having a moment!
