So I'm re-posting this here:

I have a request for a cake for 6 ppl. 40th b-day, will be traveling to the beach over the July 4 weekend, so the cake would be traveling with them for at least 4 hours in the car, and they would eat it the next day.

The birthday girl is Irish and her nieces are flying over from Ireland for the b-day/July 4 beach trip.

I looked through the patriotic gallery and saw some cute ideas, in particular the patriotic flip flop cake: http://cakecentral.com/modules.....pid=555903

I also saw a way to make an orange, white, and green (colors of Irish flag) layer cake. Or perhaps a shaped 4-0 with red, white, and blue colors would be the way to go? But easiest might be just an 8" fondant with stars and stripes and a fondant 4-0.

DH doesn't like the flip flop idea, because he thinks it's too bizarre to eat shoes. But he doesn't understand my cake world.

Any thoughts?

I like the flip flop idea and would not go with the patriotic theme...the person has had to share a birthday every year with the 4th..let the 40th be HER day and tailor it to fit her. You could always do them in the colors of the Irish flag...tying that into the cake for her. And, yes, your DH doesn't understand cakes or women...LOL...betcha the birthday girl will love them.

Have fun!

make flip flops with shamrocks on them !! I think the flip fops with the patterns on them are cute!! And put a shamrock on the band of the flip flop too. It would be so cute.

Okay..now I may have to make a flip flop cake.. (thanks..(sarcasm)) icon_lol.gif

Thanks everyone! She liked the flip flop idea, but decided a sandcastle cake would be ideal. Must go research.
