Rated 5 out of 5 by from I've made this cake twice for cub scouts. My son helped, but instead of piping the intertubes & kids, we used mini chocolate donuts and put the little babies from the Wilton favor collection. They fit perfectly. We also used paper towel cardboard tubes covered in foil to make the slides. We simply put icing on the foil and placed a donut with a baby inside. Before placing the donuts, we sprayed (my son loved that part) the icing blue so that it looked like water. I used all white icing. I also used rainbow sprinkles on the sides for some color and used satin ribbon over lollipop sticks as poles to hold the sign. Huge fun to make!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I made this one for my grand-kids group birthday party and it was a 'big splash'. I created the little people and the slides ahead of time and the day of the party it was easy to ice and assemble each cake. I took it to their house and assembled the three cakes and slides on the table as I didn't have the stand and used a glass plate and two glass bowls of varying sizes to get the slope. I put blue jello in the bowls to simulate water and inserted 'gold fish'. Having three separate cakes made it easy to do different flavors which was a crowd pleaser. The kids at the party were all crying 'dibs' on their favorite little person. Great project!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I made this cake once for fun. I used flower formers for the slides and covered them with piping gel go simulate water. The kids on the innertubeswere very cute and my kids loved eating them. However, fondant alone doesn't have a real good flavor so I add butter and vanilla flavorings to the fondant and my kids devour it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My favorite part of this cake was the innertube kids! They were SO cute and versatile. After I made the cake, I was asked to make cupcakes with a pool theme and choose these happy kids as the toppers. It went over so well and their kids were so happy with the results, this recipe is a DEFINITE keeper!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I used this idea, but changed it for a baby shower. I decorated each layer to look like a cloud, made stars to put on the sides of the slides, and put little babies sliding to each layer. The banner on the top layer said "Wishes from Heaven". It was a big hit.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I made this one last year as an end of the school year pool party celebration for the kids. The fondant people were the most fun/ difficult to make, but it was overall not too hard. Too cute. have fun personalizing your swimmers!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cake was a huge hit. I made the slide out of suger cookies so that everything was edible. People couldn't believe that they could eat it all and that the swimmers were frosting. Very fun cake

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It was a project that i enjoyed doing even though it was a challenging but i loved it and nobody wanted to cut it, we had the party at a wate park so it was perfect for the occasion.
