Luau Birthday

 Luau Birthday  on Cake Central

Cake is a combination of several ideas from cakes on CC. 10" and 8" red velvet iced in buttercream. Tiki hut is two cupcakes stacked, iced in royal and covered with pretzel sticks. Pretzel rod palm trees with fondant leaves. Torches are candles wrapped in fondant (didn't really like the way these turned out). Fondant tiki mask, shark fin, snake and coconuts. Pirouette cookies around island. Graham cracker crumbs for sand and Oreo crumbs for path. A lot of work but fun and very rewarding!

For the leaves I just used one of the Wilton metal leaf cutters to get the general shape and size and used a knife instead of the leaf cutter on the side where the cutter curves in. Hope that makes sense!

Oh, I love this! Thanks for the great description too, that is so helpful in trying to recreate your masterpiece. ;) This one is definitely going on my 'to do' list!
