Hey people. Here's some stuff for the kiddo's Luau party.
My little one asked for the fruit arrangment. Well, she asked for "fruit on a stick!" lol!! She loved the last one so I threw together another one for her. The pineapple cake was supposed to stand up... um... as you can see that didn't go as planned. Hey, I'm learning!
If you make a standing pineapple cake you should know a few things. First off, you will need the internal pillars to hold the weight. You will also need larger cakes. You can't make a 4-5 inch cake to hold up that kind of height and weight. For some reason I guessed that my cake could defy gravity. ROTFL!! When it fell over we all agreed to just let it lay there.
Tomorrow when we set up we are going to put "sand" (powdered graham crakers) around it with the luau cupcakes. No big deal. It was about time I had my own cake wreck. At least I learned.
Here are the cupcakes. They are sand colored buttercrem with bright sprinkles and topped with a drink umbrella. We thought it was festive and fun.
Another edit. No one at the party cared about the laying pineapple. Least of all my daughter who loves any cake standing or otherwise. lol!! It tasted great and was gone quickly. Who knew an end of summer luau could be so much fun?!
I'm throwing in a nice bright card too. I love using a paper piercer to make holes as a decoration. That's weird, huh? Either way here ya go. SU! ink and stamps, the paper is Chatterbox and Bazzill.
