21st birthday beach cake

For a joint-21st birthday party.

This cake is massive! 14" + 12" + 10" + 8" + 6".

I tried so hard to talk these two girls out of having such a huge cake but they were determined to have the whole thing as real cake! You wouldn't believe how much it weighs.

My first go at modelling bikini-clad figurines which was much harder than I'd anticipated (and I think I may have overdone it a little on their boobs! Oops!)

The top two 'sandcastle' tiers were first covered with choc ganache then a rough layer of RI mixed with brown sugar to give the sand effect. The little crenellations are sugar cubes covered with the RI mixture.

Everthing else (apart from the deckchairs) hand made from fondant/gumpaste.
