Tropical Hula Girl Ocean Birthday Cake

I am a newbie in the world of cake decorating, and I absolutely love it! This was made for my daughter's birthday. she wanted a hula/surf party. Tons of detail in this cake: gumpaste surf, fondant wave curls, brown sugar sand, a bucket & shovel, flip flops, palm trees, a little crab, coral, anemones, an octopus, starfish, and of course, my "daughter" in a hula skirt. The cake was a coconut cake with mango curd and vanilla bean buttercream. Unfortunately, I finished the cake in the wee hours of the night, and fell asleep on the sofa before I put it in the fridge, so it does have some sagging. Luckily, my daughter didn't care, and she loved her cake!
