Hawaiian Luau Birthday Cake

This past weekend did a first birthday cake for my vet's daughter, affectionately known as Gigi (isn't that cute?).  They were doing a Hawaiian Luau theme, and wanted to use bright tropical colors.

Since it was a holiday weekend and I had no weddings, it gave me a little extra time to throw some creativity at it.  I got out my Cricut Cake and my Life is a Beach cartridge and started cutting tropical leaves, tiki heads, hula girls, and tropical flowers.  Now these cut files weren't specifically designed for cake usage but they worked very well.  I could pull out the centers of the flowers and the tiki heads and it gave the cake lots of dimension.  I even made a big 3D Tiki head out of rice crispy treats for the top.

Gigi's Mom was super excited when she came to pick it up, she even shed a tear or two she was so happy!  Awwwww!  Happy Birthday Gigi!!


  1. That is friggin sweet! I love it and I must have the Cartridge now!!!

  2. Thanks for visiting my blog and bringing me to yours :) You have such talent! While this cake looks fantastic, I especially loved the replica of the Georgia Bulldogs stadium. So much detail that you nailed :) At my wedding, I surprised my husband with a groom's cake that was shaped like a helicopter (he's a helicopter pilot.) Seeing all your groom's cakes reminded me of it :)

  3. sooo pretty! I love the bright colors!

  4. Beautiful and summery! I love the colors

  5. Thanks for stopping by my blog. What a beautiful cake! I really like the UGA cake and peanut butter cake. Also, I used to live in Chattanooga, so I love your Tennessee Aquarium cake. :)


Thanks for visiting the blog! I look forward to reading your comments!
