Sand Castle Cake

Summer is finally here! We are so excited for picnics, camping and days at the beach. My daughters last day of school for the summer was last Wednesday and to celebrate I made a sand castle cake.

Sand Castle Cake
A sand castle cake is really fun to make. You can, of course, make any shape that you want. I went with a double stack. All you have to do is ice your cakes in buttercream and then add the “sand”.  That’s where crushed up graham crackers come in handy. You just press the crumbs up against the cake and it sticks on to look like sand.

To finish it off, add some seashells, pearls, starfish and a flag. I took some pictures as I made the shells and starfish. They are quite simple to make but add that finishing touch to any beach themed party!

This is totally amazing! My son has a summer birthday and we live right by the beach so this would be perfect for him! Thanks for sharing!

This is a reall awesome cake for the summer. It looks like it may be a bit out of my league but I think my friend Jenn and I are going to give it a shot. I think I might like to try and do the shells :)
