Itsy Bitsy Teenie Weenie Polka Dot Bikini

Every time we finish a cake we both just stand there for a few seconds in utter amazement that we actually created such a thing! And then comes the moment of gittyness and excitement! I still can't believe that we have been able to do such work with having never taken any form of class or lessons. Totally self-taught! I am sure there are several tricks and strategies that we don't know about, but heck I think we have done just fine so far! As in the words of Michele, "We do some awesome work!" Okay, okay, I am done tooting our horns! Can you tell I am proud?!?!

We made this cake for a co-worker's friend's thirtieth birthday! She is a water skier and this past summer their ski team did a show in pink and yellow polka dot bikinis.

The body of the cake is made from a 9x13 cake pan and the chest was molded out of rice krispies. We started by carving the cake to form the waist and hips. Ya know, the wonderful hour-glass shape! We covered the entire cake with a golden-brown marshmallow fondant. She has the tan all of us are longing for in the middle of December. Dang her! We finished it off by cutting out the bikini in bright pink fondant and accessorizing with yellow polka dots and tie string!

This cake could take so many directions! Could definitely make it more scandalous for a bachelor party! Or how fun would it be to make it all saggy for an "over the hill" birthday party! Oh the possibilities!
