Last weekend, we had the honor of making a luau-themed cake for an office family picnic. The office hosting the get-together happened to be Mel’s husband’s office…but that’s just a minor detail. *wink*
We incorporated a grass skirt, surf boards, tribal masks, hibiscus flowers, and bright colors! In fact, everything you see in the photo above is edible! Here’s a close-up of the hibiscus flower topper:
And a close-up of the tribal masks and grass skirt.
As party attendees, we HAD to enter our daughter Mikaela in the Hawaiian costume contest! Here are Mikaela and her Daddy before the competition:
And, yes, she was one of 4 costume contest winners! Look at her though…how could she not win?! Such a cutie! (Ok, we’re biased…but we still think she’s the cutest baby in a grass skirt!)
