this cake was done for a fundraising event at a tiki bar in NJ. super easy and it was a hit. rolled out green fondant just larger than height of the tier and made slits from bottom to just about the top. adhered to cake with gum glue. then used brown sugar for sand. used wilton blossom tool to quickly pop out a ton of flowers. put those at top of 'hula skirt'. added tylose to brown fondant and molded around campbell soup can. decorated tiki with buttercream icing. attached pirouette cookies to top tier, stuck two drink umbrellas into cake and ta-da! very simple but still impressive!
