I have a 15 year old niece that wears flip flops all the time. Anyhow, her birthday is the 31st of August and I want to make her a pair of flip flops for her cake. I was wondering if anyone has any ideas.

Thanks

Here's a flip flop cake I made this past weekend. It's not perfect, but I made it for my cousin, and she loved it. I just took a pair of new flip flops, and traced the pattern on a paper, and voila. I used fruit by the foot, but alot of people use fondant for the strap. If you look in the gallery, there's lots of really good ones icon_surprised.gif)

The flip flop cakes are super easy. Just outline an actual flip flop on paper and lay that on the cake. I used a knife to cut out the shapes and it worked just fine. There are several photos in my album if you want to look. I used fruit roll ups for the straps, buttercream flowers on top of the strap and crushed graham crackers for the sand. Hope that helps.

On the Wilton website there is a really cute cookie cake receipe using flip flops that are decorated nice. These flip flops would also be cute to use as cookies on a stick maybe put in a wicker basket with sunglasses, gatorades, snacks, and maybe a beach towel as a gift. Even cuter would be a sand pail with a shovRecipe Box
