I’m working on my daughter’s 6th birthday cake. She loves the water and refers to the beach as the “big water”.
So naturally I’m doing a beach cake. I’ll do a full sheet. I’ve got the blue piping gel for water, white glitter gel for water foam, and leftover banana cake that I’ll thaw, crumble and dry for the sand.
I’ve made gumpaste umbrellas, shells, and a beach ball. I’ve made palm fronds and I’m using an Oreo Fun Stick for the tree trunk.
Now for my dilemma….... I’ve got to make people and it’s not working out. Way too advanced for me, I think. I need a daddy, a 6 year old, and a mommy. I’ll be laying on the beach, of course! But daddy and child have to be playing by the water.
I took a pic of the daddy figure so far. At this point I’ll have to put him in the water. And he’s going to wonder why his arms look flabby. Truthfully, the torso is pretty darned close! lol And because of the arm seams, he’ll have to wear a t-shirt!
Anyway, the event is Sunday and I have to get these done and dried. Any ideas on how to make a gumpaste family? Maybe some pic ideas that aren’t to advanced?
ps, the cake flavor will be chocolate with a Nutella BC filling. Vanilla MBC to cover, tinted of course. Any better ideas? I’m using the Nutella for sure.
