I made blue, orange, and pink cake, in bright vibrant colors. After trying out different ways to layer the cake, I found this way to be the prettiest. There is nothing in between each cake layer, just green frosting on top.
I thought it needed a flower on top. If I would of had more time, I would have made a pretty fondant flower, but I was in a HUGE rush, so I just made a flower with yellow frosting. I put a little bit of orange frosting in the middle, and took a corn on the cob holder, (hey, don’t judge! lol! That’s the only thing small and pointy I could come up with! )and pull the orange into each petal. Then I put a small orange candy in the middle.
So for the grass skirts, this is where my 15 year old daughter came in. We took hair ponies that we bought from the dollar store, and tied strips of green curling ribbon to them. I’m not going to lie….it was a bit of a pain. It wouldn’t have been so hard if we had more time. My youngest daughter Macy brought home the note on a Wednesday afternoon, and we had to have them there by Friday morning. So we were under pressure! Anyway, after we got all of the ribbon on them, I trimmed them up a bit to make them look a little bit even. I found some silk flowers that were perfect for them! So I hot glued them on the skirts.
Here’s Macy all ready for her Luau party! Her teacher freaked out when she saw them! A lot of people haven’t seen push pops yet, so she was so excited! I don’t always get to go on field trips, or help out in my kids classrooms, but I do try to send in fun treats when I can. The kids (and adults) love it!
Just had to share this picture! I thought it was funny! Gotta love Michigan in the winter!
