Last year I entered my first cake competition with this little beach themed cake. Cradlestone Mall were celebrating their first birthday and they hosted among the first year celebrations a cake competition. Entries were open to all bakers and the cakes were judged and then either auctioned or sold off by the slice and all proceeds went to charity. I made this petite Beach Girl Figurine in her lime green bikini top and lacy skirt and placed her on my vanilla sponge cake that was covered in layers of pale cream fondant and blue waved fondant. Beach bronzed sugar crystals were perfect for the sand for her to sit on and sugar paste shells and frangipani flowers completed the fun summer beach theme. I moulded soft blue waves on the board of the cake that gently kissed the bottom of the cake and dotted the waves with tiny white sugar pearls and sugar paste shells.
