Fun's A Shore Thing Cake is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 5.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from This cake is so cute and it turned out very nicely. I loved the way the gel looked like water. The drop flowers add just a nice touch to the cake. I am using this cake as a going away cake.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love this cake. I make it a square cake to feed more people. I use crushed lady finger cookies for the sand, it makes it look more like real sand. I also added a "grass" skirt to the sides of the cake using the grass tip and just slowly pulling down the cake. Made it look much more tropical! I also piped white into the water and swirled it a little with a toothpick to give the water more movement.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I used the idea from this but I used the paisley pan for it. My brother got married on the beach in Miami and had is wedding reception in PA for our family. He and his wife wanted a beach themed cake so I volunteered to do the cake since I remembered seeing this one before. I used the paisley pan set and made a 3 layer cake and I used chocolate in squeeze bottles to make rafts to float in the "water". Instead of flowers for the border I use white chocolate, pink chocolate and peanut butter candy melts and molds to make sea shells. My 8 year old helped me make the candy molds. You can find already colored piping gel with glitter in it, it makes the water look more real. And I crushed up some graham crackers to mix with the brown sugar so that it looked like it had rocks in it. I also added a pair of swim trunks and a bikini top I made from melting chocolates as well. This is something that really got my personal creativity going.
