Luau Cake

Well in 2 days we are having a pirate luau party.  The pirate cake is yet to come but I finished up the luau cake this evening.  Here’s the details ~ its an 8″ & 12″ stacked cake.  The 8″ is chocolate with a coconut buttercream filling and the 12″ is white cake with a pineapple filling.  Both are covered in a blue marbled fondant (hard to see in the pic).  The cake board itself is covered in crushed graham crackers for “sand” and the bamboo is hand painted fondant pieces.

The flowers are gumpaste hibiscus and plumeria.  Each hand made and hand painted by me.  The hibiscus took me about 9 min a piece to make.  I made 19 total but didn’t use them all (always good to have extras!)  It was my first time making them and I’m pleased with how they turned out.  Oh and a note that the bamboo has a little more yellowish tint in person.  It looks very brown in this pic.
