Beachy 40th Birthday Cake - Jim
This cake is the big 4-0 meets Hawaii 5-0. This simple birthday cake was for a rained out beach party. (Who knew!! Weird weather this year.) It was covered in vanilla buttercream tinted brown (with sugar in the raw sprinkled on top for sand) and blue (textured with a spatula to resemble waves). I added a simple border at the bottom and some white chocolate shells. But the most spectacular part of this cake was inside. The cake was my new flavor that I call "Cocomac". It was a coconut cake with macadamia nuts and white chocolate chips, layered with my coconut cream filling. It got rave reviews at the party. If you like those flavors, I highly recommend it. Yum!
