Okay, I got a little excited and decided I'd make a cake for my sister's friend for her 21st birthday. She's having a themed birthday party that's a Luau/Hawaiian, whatever you wanna call it. So any really fun ideas for it?

This is totally cute and looks pretty easy :

You could also get some shell shaped candy molds and make white chocolate shells to decorate a coconut cake. Anything coconut or pineapple would go with the theme.

You could also just make a basic cake and decorate it with silk hibiscus flowers.

This isn't a cake, but my grandma always used to make me a thing called 'Hawaiian pie" that tastes awesome.

This is the closest recipe that I could find:

we take bigbivalve type shells . just one half - cover the top with aluminum foil then you pour over it your melted chocolate - put it inthe fridge to harden - then... they come apart from the shell easily ... these make great decorations or edible ice cream cups...

also my step mom makes this adorable jello - usually a blue color in a regualr baking dish... then she decorates it with other food to resemble an island - cheap and easy and can be done before hand - she uses some fruits for the island like blueberries - a shortened celery stalk to look like palms trees etc etc - just use your imagination - wish I had a pic - its entirely edible but people have to be prompted to dig in cuz it is sooo cute yet sooo easy.... she throws a Jamaican party every year

You have to have green coconut grass!  It's really easy.  Just add a few drops of green food colouring to a baggie with a couple of handfulls of dried sweetened coconut ( in the baking aisle). Shake it up a bit and like magic it is green.

You could make a doll cake ( where you stand the doll up in a cake and the cake is the skirt) and decorate her like a hula dancer, grass skirt, shell bra etc...

Instead of making a cake. Which would have probably been a bad idea anyway, though I won't say why. We made a Hairy Buffalo. [Type of drink you mix different alcohols and fruit slices and juice together.. depending on what you want in it I guess.] I'm definitely not in love with most types of alcohol, they just don't appeal to me [Only like certain kinds with certain flavors].. but it was pretty good. We didn't go by a recipe what so ever. Just kinda.. poured stuff in, cut fruit and put it in. But all the fruit floating on top made it look very pretty, and tropically. Just thought I'd update and tell ya what was made.  Wink
