Teddy-on-the beach Cake, a makeover



This post is meant to demonstrate a simple cake makeover in just about 20 minutes. So, definitely not going in for details on making a cake, i just use a normal store brought plum cake in here.
You need:
Round shaped cake
Whipping Cream
Teddy bear crackers, flat wafer crackers
Licorice belts / sheets, ring shaped jelly gums
Coctail umbrellas
Kit-kat or any other similar ones
Corn flakes / crackers - crushed to fine powder
Blue food colour

How to: 


Beat the whipping cream till peaks appear, as per package instructions. (little things are best when done with little fingers...my lill assistant.)


Seperate the whipped cream to two batches and add in blue food colour. Little in one, and a bit more in the other to get two diffrent tones - dark and light.

Apply white whipping cream to the sides and top half of the cake and cover it with the crushed corn flakes to resemble sand.


Cover the remaining top portion with the blue coloured cream, blending in dark and light tones. To the edges, touch the white cream for the waves. Note that you keep few cut pieces of paper below the cake while applying the cream to keep the base plate neat. To be removed once the docoration is done.

 Slightly push up and then pull back the whipped cream white a knife / spatula as shown to resemble waves.


 Cut the licorice belts into a small rectangle and place a teddy cracker on top. Now, they are ready for a sun - tan on the beach, shaded by a coctail umbrella.
Place ring shaped jelly gums in the waters with teddy's inside..

 Cover the edges alternating with kit-kat and thin ice-cream flat wafers, and secure with a ribbon.



There you go !! remake in just about 20 minutes!
