This is a three-layer checkerboard cake (white and chocolate) with the almond custard filling recipe from this site.
I used crushed graham wafers for the sand and pretzels for the hut. (The pretzel idea was from another cake that I had seen on this site). For the trees, I used plastic egg cartons and piped icing over them using the striped icing technique.
Three of the ladies are white cake and the other is chocolate.
My friend's birthday was a Survivor theme.
