Flip Flops

This cake was for a "couples" shower. The couple were to be married on the beach so the hostess wanted a palm tree, marguarita or something. The cake is covered with buttercream; the straps and flowers are fondant. Even though the straps were allowed to dry for 3-4 days ahead of decorating, one broke and I "glued" it together with vanilla which worked OK. The next time I will make the straps thinner. I smoothed the tops of the flip with a textures paper towel which made them look more realistic.

Susan, most flowers were fondant cut using the wilton cutter for the rose in different sizes. The small ones are using a cutter and press (holds 5 flowers) that I keep on hand all the time.
