A Summertime Beach Cake Means Summertime Fun #SharingIsCaringBlogHop

Sharing is Caring Blog Hop
Welcome to the Sharing is Caring Summer Blog Hop hosted by:
Life With Lovebugs, Powerful Mothering, and A Spectacled Owl!

In honor of Summer, we decided we wanted to make a summer dessert. My daughter & I thought about it and wondered if we wanted to make a dessert that had summery flavors or that was decorated like summer. We could have done both but we decided to make a fun cake & decorate it! And that’s where our Summertime Beach Cake comes in!

Ashlyn and I wanted to use Duncan Hines Cotton Candy Flavor Mix but the boys vetoed it! So, we used white frosting & added blue food coloring until we got the right shade of blue.

When it came to decorating the cake, we both racked our brains trying to think of the perfect things to add. We started at Target but couldn’t really find anything so we headed to the mall & went into Sweet Factory. Looking through all the bins of candy was like Heaven on Earth! We finally came across red & white gummy bears that made for great sunburnt & pasty white bears (which are just like me!) We figured the pasty white bears would hide under the umbrellas that we snacked from the wine aisle at the grocery store and lay on pieces of the sour rainbow belts (towels).  We also used the belts to make surfboards for the more adventurous bears. Crushed graham crackers made our beach & little candy fishies swam out with the surfers.

We had a ton of fun making our cake & can’t wait to make another themed cake. What theme cake/cupcakes should we do next?
