Birthday on the Lake

Hi Folks! This is the birthday cake I made for my granddaughter, Tori, for her 5th birthday! She had a swimming party at a nearby lake so she wanted a "lake cake"! It was a perfect day with beautiful weather, a sanded beach and shallow water, a cool breeze and even a fish or two jumping! She and her friends played for hours and only came out of the water for snacks and cake, of course! Her cake is half chocolate, half strawberry (her favorites) and frosted with buttercream frosting. I made the beach chairs and flip flops out of craft foam colored with Sakura gel pens. The animals and the little girl were from a "Polly Pocket" set. The "beach" is frosting covered with brown sugar. I used foliage from around my house to mimic the trees around the lake.The birthday banner was printed on the computer. I was thrilled when we arrived at the site and the cake had "travelled well". Thanks for letting me share this special day for our family. I would love to see and hear about your special cakes, too! Bountiful blessings to you all!

  2. Wow! Great cake!
    I took Wilton's Cake Decorating Levels one and two, but haven't done much of anything for cakes since. I think my husband is grateful - he'd just end up eating most of it anyways!
