My 2nd flip flop cake! First time doing brush embroidery for a customer.  I copied the flip flops on the partyware.  This was fun to make. Thanks for looking.

This idea came from a little Betty Crocker dessert idea book.  I think it turned out really cute!  I made it for a silent auction to raise money for  a nearby college.  The "sand" was made out of brown sugar.

Someone asked me for this photo and SORRY...I erased your email! Here it is anyway. The waves were done in fondant and the rest of the cake is all smooth buttercream. The couple made their "first cut" with a tiny gardening spade!!

this was my second cake ever without any classes.  once again i had problems with getting the icing on the cake and getting it smooth but i got it as good as i could and quit before i got to mad.  if anyone has any advice i would appreciate it.  im still playing with making roses and this wasnt a major cake for anyone so i wasnt too concerned but still wanted it to look good.  i made the straps out of candy melts and corn syrup.

1/2 sheet cake, vanilla. Buttercream icing, crushed vanilla wafers for sand, pretzel rods with fondant leaves for palm trees. The seashells, starfish, beach blanket, beach chair and beachball are all fondant. The only thing not edible is the little umbrella. I'm so proud of this one! And I can't believe how easy it is to make, I have to thank everyone here on CC for their ideas on the beach cakes, your all great!

This cake was made for my niece on her 3rd  birthday.  We had a beach party theme, so I thought I would try to make a cake that actually looked like a sand castle.  My cousin thought it looked too much like a sand castle to eat. However the kids loved it and so did the adults.

Whipped icing (Bettercreme) with fondant ribbon, hand molded chocolate shells dry dusted with lustre dust.  The larger shells & the chair are made from MMF.  I ended up carving out the letters and filling with icing because it wouldn't hold the shape.  Used crushed vanilla oreos for the sand.

This was a last minute cake I decorated for my dad for his birthday.  He surfs, so I thought a beach theme would be fun.  The cake is a cake mix and store bought frosting (I wasn't very happy at my mother when she brought it home). ;) The surfboard and little dude are frosting, and the sand is brown sugar.  My mom brought it to work the next day, (she's a teacher), and no one would touch it until she finally cut into it.  Thanks for looking!

2nd beach themed cake and much easier then the 1st. (Used fondant to make trees, flower, shells, etc.- very time consuming!).  This was fun to do and the bride to be loved it.  You can't tell in the pic but I used the edible glitter and the "sand" looked very real.

This was a 10" round bottom, with the "doll dress" cake on top, but I cut it down to a diameter of 8", and rounded-off the top.  I put it on a board & off-set it, so part of it was off the back of the 10" cake, to give more room for "ocean & waves".  This was a really fun cake, thanks for looking!

This was a cake I did for pool party. Something with a beach ball is all she told me and this is what I came up with.  I used upside down ice cream cones for the "towers" on the sand castle, graham cracker crumbs for the "sand" and Wilton candy melts for the sea shells. It turned out pretty cute... the birthday boy loved it!

I made this cake for a big family get together we are having at he beach this weekend.  It is iced in Charlotte's Buttercream (with some butter, not all shortening, which is FABULOUS and pipes about a 7 on a scale of 1-10).  THe sand castle was molded in teh wilton castle pan from peanut butter candy melts.  The clouds and sun are chocolate transfer, and the fish and sea animals are gummies.  The inside is a chocolate cake with cookies and cream filling (made with icing, not cream).

For a 6 year old who was having a beach/Hawaiian them birthday party.  The mother wanted palm trees, but I don't have access to plastic palm trees here in Japan, so I tried to make one from a large pretzel stick and buttercream leaves.  I also didn't realize that it is hard to pipe icing on vanilla wafer crumbs.  They were pleased.  Thanks to CC for the beach theme ideas.
