Hey ladies! It's my 14th birthday in 26 days (yes, I counted) and I am having a huge themed birthday party. It's a beach theme. I'm having troubles to think of a cool cake. My friends are big eaters, and I want them to have a cool cake to google at. Any ideas of a unique cake that I can make that stays with my theme? thanks ladies!

Try a sheet cake with sea blue icing and vanilla cream for sand for a beach. There are all kinds of candy that look like fish, sharks, etc. A party store will have little deorations like palm trees.

ooh you could do plenty!

you could do a bikini torso, an easy one is a beach ball, I remember when I was younger my dad made me a beach cake, he bought some 'beach people' so so tiny, from a model store (you know, where you can buy miniature things for say, train sets and stuff) and I think there was yellow icing for sand (as they other lady said) or even yellow crystallised sprinkles, and same for the water... or tak another step and use blue jellly! paper palm trees (my dad made them I think) or buy them from the decorator stores.

I'm sure you'll come up with something awesome and Happy Birthday!

I put the 'ass' in 'Class'

My aunt made one last year that was frosted in blue with white accents (for the waves). And as kittell said, it had a spot cut out in the middle and she poured blue jello!!! inside to be the water and surrounded it/covered the top of the cake with graham cracker crumbs. And of course, like many others have mentioned, all the fun shaped candy you can put on top of it.

I googled jello beach cake and founds lots of results. If you're up for the fun and weirdness that is the jello cake, google it and see if you can find tips and ideas for making it.

Have fun!

Wow! I gotta lot of replies! hah. Thanks ladies, those are all great ideas! I found a picture of a cake online (searching the jello beach cake ideas:]) and I found this one, that I think I'm going to mimic!


But, I'm going to use the things you guys suggested Smiley

Thanks loads!
