Tiki with Surfboard Cake


This sculpted Hawaiian tiki with a surfboard cake was a special one to us. It was ordered by a man for his wife in honor of her birthday, a day they would be unable to celebrate together because she was going on deployment. Rick chose to make this cake using both light and brown colors for the tiki and surfboard and added a couple hibiscus flowers and a beach at the base. Our client and the party guests loved his wife's tiki cake and it looked incredibly realistic. Unfortunately we didn't have a chance to meet his wife but we want to wish her the best while she is away and are looking forward to making her and her husband another cake after she returns.

Aloha, 'til next time!

Thank you for the compliments! The tiki cakes are so much fun, and this one was especially meaningful because the couple would be missing both a birthday and possibly Christmas together, and we wanted to make it extra special for them.

I absolutely love your cakes!!! I am an amateur baker and you have inspired me to make a tiki cake for my friend's going away party. A tiki cake is appropriate since he is going to the Big Island. Do you have any advice or suggestions on making this cake, especially getting that carved wooden look on the cake? Would fondant be too heavy to cover a tall cake and would it tear? Thank you!!!
