Rated 5 out of 5 by from i made a devils food cake and when i noticed i had no frosting i made cream cheese but i didnt know tht cream cheese came out so thin so my grass wasnt the best, the sides sagged slightly but it wasnt noticable, on the bright side it worked wonders for the water. i did blue fondant for the sides and made a sunburned girl,a rubber duck, and a floaty. it turned out well all in all and as soon as i was done my brother wanted a piece :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Once I realized that the kids in the pool were cupcake toppers... this was really easy to make. I covered the cake in blue marshmallow fondant, and piped on the buttercream accents. I tinted piping gel instead of using the sparkle gel, and it worked out just as well. Cake was a big hit! I raffled it off at the school where I work. The kids totally loved it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from my daughter had a pool party and we couldn't agree on a cake, she wanted bright colors, and i was thinking fun and pool party idea. we came across this idea and both loved it, her friends did too! its an easy cake but do it a few days in advance because the decorating takes some time.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from we used icing for the blue and did all the white in fondant. Our people were made out of fondant too. My 13 yr old daughter and I worked together. She did most of the work and it came out great. Will make this one again!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is a very easy to make cake but the children are very hard to make I would suggest that you all make the kids with fondant!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from This was fun to do but I found it hard to do the kids. I added a life saver for a float and a round mint for a ball.
