Well with the help of my cake baking maestro sister, my wife and about seven hours later we have an edible Bumatay!

This is to kick off Phinz bar tonight at his New Years party.

I hope you like him and I may start making custom Tiki Cakes, this was a blast. While my sister and wife bailed on the decoration, they didn't think it looked good. I knew that mixing the Parrot Bay coconut rum and airbrusing the cake would pull it all together.

This is a huge cake and my first. I also want to say that this is all icing, no fondant on this cake!

Let me know your thoughts,

Paul

The cake is wonderful! & that it's real icing & not fondant is even better! What flavor is it?
Wish that I could produce cakes like that.

Here is the building of the cake and yes it's all icing and very hard to deal with. I airbrushed the cake with brown food coloring and Parrot Bay Coconut Rum. Cake was a tropical flavor and was a huge success if I do say so myself. Weighed in just over ten pounds.













Thanks for looking,

Paul

It was pure, sinful awesome. The cake was a huge hit at Trader Scott's last night and was a perfect addition to what turned out to be an incredible Grand Opening.

I'll have "finished" pics soon. I just need to recover from 7 months of work. We still have plenty to do, but it's all details at this time.

Biggest thanks go to Tiki 65 for his incredible vision, knowledge and help in bringing our dream bar to fruition. Here's to years more to come, and Happy New Year to everybody!

LOL, good luck, my sister says the secret is in the shortening and she uses some skunk class a shortening bought from a local confectioner.

The icing stays firm and where you place it on the cake. The cake itself is smooth and soft, probably the best sheet cake I've ever had.

The real way to finish it is to airbrush the cake, the only way to achieve the wood grain look.

Good luck and thanks for posting!

Paul
