This was for my son and nephew, Zack and Zach. We had a beach theme, complete with blue seashell fettucini and hot dog octopus, with blue punch and swedish fish swimming in it. Beach layer is chocolate, castle strawberry, ball white with raspberry filling. BC frosting on all, sand is graham cracker crumbs.

I used several ideas off this site to come up with the final version.  It was a carrot cake with spice frosting (had to tint it quite dark to cover the "speckle".

Quick and easy cake to do for an emergency birthday cake from a loving wife who had just came from surgery and remembered her husbands birthday!  (What a great wife!)  

I got so excited with that grass tip that I ran out of room to put happy birthday.  So I got him a card.

In a rush and wanted to do more, but this cake has to travel 4 hours of a winding drive, through the mountains and got up early to place fondant and finish it. Didn't have time, but I think that if I hand painted something on the sides of the cake it would be quite beautiful. I think that I made the seashell too blue also, I am experimenting with adding color to the shell.

Who knew you could put jell-o in a cake?  I thought the idea was so cool!  It turned out pretty good, and it wasn't that hard.  The hardest part was frosting the holes.  Lisa loved it!

This cake was made for a friends bridal shower, the icing is buttercream, the water was made from gel and blue food coloring, the sand is crushed up brown sugar, the seashells are made from peanut butter . You can't tell from the picture but the bride and grooms names are written in the sand, the flip flops are the candles.

Several pictures from CC were my inspiration for this cake.  This was for my mother's birthday, she loves the beach and shells.  The cake is pumpkin spice, my own concoction of 2 boxes of spice cake, a large can of pumpkin and a box of vanilla pudding.  The base is 9x13 topped by 2-6 inch rounds and the tower was baked in a soup can.  I heated cream cheese premade frosting and drisseled over the cake and pressed in cookie crumbs.  I ground up pecan sandies and some vanilla sandwich cookies for the sand.

This is a scratch chocolate cake with white chocolate frosting.  I used a seashell mold and candy melts for decoration along with crumbled vanilla wafers for the 'sand'.

This was for a 65th birthday. She absolutely loved it. I know the flip flops are not to scale but I meant it that way. I wanted it to be like a big  centerpiece on top of the cake. Everything is edible except the flowers on the columns. The flip flops are cake covered in fondant. I had a little problem with that. I put them in the freezer and when they defrosted the fondant got all weird. Oh well, lesson learned. Overall, I'm really happy with the results.

Bottle is carved from cake, iced in buttercream then covered in fondant.  Writing on the lower portion of the bottle is done in buttercream, while the upper is done with food color markers. Cake was frozen for 20 minutes, then transferred onto an 11x15 sheetcake.  I then added graham cracker crumb "sand", airbrushed in the sky and added the fondant lime!

I made this cake for my father's birthday.  He recently took up diving and I was trying to use that theme. The sides of the cake are supposed to resemble the beach.  I wish I had a better picture of the top and the diver I piped in BC but I cannot find it.  Everything on the cake is edible except for the shells.

i made this cake for my bestfriend who loves the beach for his 16 birthday. he loved the cake so much and acually never ate it,he kept it in his fridge for a month until his mom made him throw it out! The cake has seashells, slippers, a crab, a starfish, a set of footprints. the sand is a mixture of sugar and brown sugar. To make the waves i frosted the blue then came in with white frosting on a toothpick to blend it in. For the coral reef i just piped  along the bottom of the ocean with 3 different tips.

This cake was for a little girl's Under the Sea birthday party - white cake w/bavarian creme filling, cream cheese icing, fondant luster dusted bubbles & brown sugar as sand. She added the Ariel doll at the party - it was supposed to look like she was floating on the bubbles.

I made this cake for my son's 5th birthday.  It was really fun!  White choc. cakes with strawberry filling. They are a half sheet, 10 in square, and 8 in round carved to look like a desert mountainside and covered in crushed nilla wafers and graham crackers. The cactus and signs are made of royal icing and the signs are handpainted with food color.  The rocks and road are fondant and the rock formations were rice krispie treats covered in fondant and sponge painted.
