Beach Party

Because a party just isn't a party without jell-o!


I was really looking forward to this cake. Seems like so many people I know - non-decorators - have made these so I wanted to give it a try. Despite the many different recipes for this cake assuring me that the jell-o wouldn't just soak into the cake, I was still a little worried, but it worked just like they said it would! Had to add a couple of my own touches...

At first, I tried making a sand castle but it wasn't working so I buried one of the bears instead...any ideas on the sand castle?

Just wanted to show you the cake I made this weekend. A friend of mine emailed you a couple weeks back, asking for directions for your ladybug and flower cake. She passed them on to me and this is what I did. Thanks for your advice, the cake was a hit and the highlight of her baby shower!

I know this is way after you doing this cake, but can you tell me about the Jello. I have done two beach themed cakes including one that is a three tier waterfall, but I use piping gel over BC to get water, so I am curious about the Jello. Also I wanted to answer you on the sandcastle thing. You could take brown sguar, and get a sand castle mold and pack it in there,if it is not packing well you can add a touch of water to it. But then unmold it immediatly and put it in an oven at 200 for about 10 minutes. Then you could hollow it out a bit if you think it is two heavy but then let it dry for a few days. Or put it back the oven for another 10 minutes to help dry it even more. Hope it helps.

Thanks for the brown sugar castle idea! Might have to use it the next time I make this cake. And I'm going to email you about the jello!
