Summer Flip Flop Cake
One of my best friend's was having a "shoe" themed party for her daughter who was turning 2 and all about shoes (as was my daughter at the time...fun party for us!) We decided that since this was a summery birthday (July), that we would do a brightly colored flip flop cake. The bottom cake that the flip flops are resting on was a homemade scratch carrot cake with a yummy cream cheese frosting colored pale pink (this one was for all the grown ups at the party). The flip flops were cut cakes (I think they were yellow cake) with vanilla buttercream. I used fondant cut outs to make most of the flowers in the pattern, 2 pre-made icing flowers for the toe piece, and rolled pieces of fondant to make that part of the shoe itself. It was a really cute party.
