Here's a recent favourite, the theme of the party was Hawaii and hula skirts, so I thought it would be fun to give the cake a little hula skirt. I find the doll cakes with a barbie torso jammed into a round cake deeply disturbing, so I was more going for the theme rather than an actual hula skirt.
I accompanied the cute cake with some cupcakes topped with little hula skirts and flowers to complete the theme.
This is a case where the flower molds come in very handy, I have a delightful little frangipane mould, which I picked up in australia, and another flower which approximates to a hibiscus.
For the writing I used the tappit funky letters, they are super cute and much easier to use than the teeny tappits.
