Last month I made this cool beach-themed cake for a young girl’s birthday party! I was super excited to get another chance to revisit some of the techniques I used on the beach wedding cake in May. Check it out:
Finally, I constructed a super cool beach umbrella out of a mixture of fondant and gumpaste, but unfortunately it was too heavy for the chocolate cake and I couldn’t include it on the finished product without a colossal cake-tastrophe. 😦 If I do this again, I will make it entirely out of gumpaste and insert a hollow, plastic dowel into the cake first. Lesson Learned!
