Tiki Cake

One of my favorite Sweet Element cakes from a *very* busy cake week last week (more posts with our other cakes to come!) was this Tiki cake I made for my aunt Julie’s retirement party that we delivered all the way up to the Manchester Country Club in Manchester, CT.  After 35 years of teaching, Julie is finally stepping out of the classroom this June.  Her only request to the party planners was that the party be Luau themed, so I thought a gigantic Tiki drink cake would be the perfect cake for the event!

This cake was a chocolate devil’s food cake filled with peanut butter buttercream and frosted in vanilla moussaline buttercream.  The decorations were a combination of modeling chocolate, fondant & gumpaste.  The only inedible things on this cake were the straw (giant emptied Pixi stick ~ yes, I saved the grape Pixi dust!) & the umbrella.  I owe a GIANT thanks to the ever crafty Jay for building that AWESOME pink drink umbrella from scratch!!!!
