I had the privilege of demonstrating this as the top tier of a three tiered cake. The middle tier was created by the very talented Sherilyn Vineyard; and the bottom tier and cake board by the uber creative Sylvia Wilson. We all built our tiers separately, then assembled them at a Day of Sharing. We were thrilled with the way it all came together!



Hope you have Fun creating your own Summer Fun Cake!!



* this tutorial is for one side of cake only. If you want to repeat the pattern on the back side of cake, you will need to make two pair of flip-flops and 12 footprints.

    You could change out the hat for a golf hat and keep the golf balls and tees.
