I would lose the trees, and do tiki torches, and a tiki statue...

sand, surf, tiki hut, tropical drinks


tiki torches, volcano, tropical flowers and birds


example of tiki gods. they look like carvings, semi totem-pole- like

And remember that pineapples are grown there.

tiki mask ( I think this would look especially well chelle if you painted it like you did the wood sign on your son's cake and the old rugged cross cake you made and then did some hawaiian flowers like hibiscus
http://www.tikibars.ca/tikimask.jpg
hibiscus (most commonly associated with hawaii and luaus)
http://www.taltopia.com/media/139/139374/010-hibiscus-flower.jpg
http://daydreamerdecals.com/flower1.jpg
real hibiscus (these come in many colors)

Lori, i've been trying to fiqure out how to do a few pineapples to lay around. LOL

yep they look like htat easter island thingy.. youknow... "more gum gum dum dum"?? LOL But with color!!

okay, yes, I wanted to do one of those too. Smile

Thanks kelly Smile yeah- in wood grain.. with weird colors on it...

Anthena.. OH MAN!! Tiki candles... that WOULD be cool!! hmmm..... *thinking*.... LOL

Thanks y'all!! Smile

This was the one I did for Caly's party last year. It's not a luau, but you could make the volcano similar to this one. I just put crumpled aluminum foil in a oven-safe bowl to make it a pointier shape. Then I lined it with parchment paper so it wouldn't stick to the foil or run past it. Super easy.

Oh, and I used cookie crumbs for sand, gel frosting for lava, and jell-o for water. The smoke was from dry ice (but you have to get it at most the day before the party since it'll evaporate right out of a cooler). The trees were plastic to save time and the only other inedible on the cake was a little plastic shot glass to hold the dry ice that was shoved down in the cake.

THat was my first thought, I saw some on a cake, but dont know where to get them ??

and tara.. Thank you!! I appriciate the vote of confidence!! She wrote me and told me to go with it. really no suggestions. just told me that she is using hybiscus flowers, leis (out of hybiscus), palm trees, flip flop lights, and grass skirts around the tables.

So, I'm working now on what all to do.. LOL

You're so creative, Chelle. You'll have no problem doing it.

Are you getting good money for it? I hope so. Your cakes are certainly worth it.

Re: another one? This weeks cake....

Post by chelle on Wed May 05, 2010 9:43 am

cool!!

KAren, thanks Smile I am charging 80.00 for this cake. 2.00 a person for what I concider a level 3 cake (lots of decorations) is pretty cheap if you ask the experts. I know I couldnt pay it. which is why I started doing it. LOL

BUT- I fiqure that I will put 10-12 hours into it. maybe more.
it will take 12-14 batches of cake
2 or so batches of fondant/gumpaste mix
5 or so batches of icing
3 things of piping gel

So far I have decided on
surfboards
a grass hut
the tiki mask thingy
flip flops in the sand
a beach towell or two in the sand.
an umbrella in the sand.
a beach ball
lanterns on the grass hut
I also am going to try to do some small leis, to lay around. but they would have to be small.

or if I can make the flowers pretty enough, put them onthe outside of the cake.


I will put either 'bamboo' around the edges of the cake, OR use my grass tip and put grass like on hoovers cake and the pond cake.



I am trying to fiqure out how to do candle holders made from tiki torches. I can make tiki torches but am not sure how to make them sturdy enough for the candles to go in.

I also dont know if I should make a sheet cake, do 2/3 in sand and 1/3 in water

OR do a sheet cake, make it all water, with an island, and on the island put the grass hut and all the sand stuff...
