Beach Party

What beach party is complete without a sand castle?? And this sandcastle was only for the special boy turning 6. It was a lemon cake with vanilla buttercream, covered in fondant. The octopus and starfish are fondant and completely edible. The seashells are a mix of white and milk chocolate and very yummy.

These cupcakes were for the party guests. They are double vanilla cupcakes with vanilla buttercream. The surfboards are sugar and completely edible.

I know that this birthday boy had a wonderful day because it was for my son....which is also why a 6 year old is requesting his "own" cake. I don't think that is a normal request. Although when you grow up and your mom is a baker- maybe your point of view is a little different- lol!
