Anna Claire's 2nd birthday celebration is this Saturday. Here's her birthday cake in progress. It might change a bit with the addition of some cut little props like you would find on the beach, and I might add some stripes to the soles of the shoes, but the basic idea is there. :)
The sand is made from a peanut butter base with crushed graham crackers sprinkled on top. The cake is strawberry on the inside and the straps are made from twislers. I have some gummy fish I might use... and some tiny gum drops that look like sea pebbles... I'm going to try to make some other beachy things like sea shells to sprinkle around too. The flowers around the sole of the flops is that 3 foot long fruit roll ups. Too cute, huh.
