Tiki Beach Cake

This Great Cake Contest entry was submitted by south_tx_momma from Camp Wood, Texas: I made this cake for my husband's grandmother on her 85th birthday.

What you'll need

  • 1 butter cake mix, 1 container of white icing, 1 container of chocolate icing, graham crackers (crushed), 1 cupcake, Tootsie Roll midgees, 1 cow tail candy, green Fruit Roll Up (cut into various sized strips), green sprinkles, flower sprinkles, orange taf

How to make it

  1. First, I baked the cake according to the directions on the package. Using the blue food coloring, I colored the white icing until I got the color blue that I wanted for the "ocean". I used the chocolate icing to make the "island" in one corner of the cake. I used the icing to build the "island" part up, so it would look like the land was higher than the water. I then covered the chocolate icing with the crushed graham crackers to look like sand.

  2. I then used the blue icing to icing the rest of the cake to look like the ocean. I had a little bit of white icing left so I used it to make whitecaps on the waves. For the Tiki hut, I took the cupcake and iced it with chocolate icing and then cut the Tootsie Rolls into strips. I then placed the strips along the sides of the cupcake. For the top of the cupcake I took the strips of fruit roll up and pressed them into the green sprinkles.

  3. I then placed the strips of fruit roll up on top of the hut. I made the palm tree out of the cow tail candy and the leaves out of the fruit roll up strips. I then used toothpicks to secure the hut and the tree to the cake. I made a little flame shape out of the orange taffy candy and put it on a toothpick to look like a torch. For the finishing touch I used flower sprinkles and the leftover fruit roll up strips to make plants and flowers."
