Hello Summer, Goodbye Stress!!!

Now you may be wondering why I haven't blogged in a while, well I have great explanation. You see, my old neighbors (best family friends) came back from Texas to visit. We were having soooo much fun , I just couldn't leave for a second. We set off the best fireworks, they were from Tennessee! Some of them went shooting up above all of the trees, it was incredible! We had some other family friends over, they are sooooooo much fun. We also went hiking with them and went to the pool.
Later we went over to our other neighbors house and had a party. We had fireworks, food, singing, and just plain old FUN! We have this party about once or twice a year.
Now that our neighbors are gone, I am bored to death. We're going to the lake today, which is always fun, but it just won't be the same.

☼A Delicious Summer Recipe☼
*Hawaiian Beach Cake*


-1 baked 13-by9-by2-inch cake
-2 1/2 cups of blue frosting
-1/4 cup of whit frosting
-1 cup of graham cracker crumbs
-Candy rocks
-Birthday candles
-Plastic Hawaiian Dancers
-Candy flower sprinkles
-Plastic Palm trees
-Fruit Stripe gum (surfboards)
-Plastic figures
-Lifesavers (inner tubes)
-Sour tape, cup into 1-inch lengths (beach blankets)
-Paper parasols (paper umbrellas)
-Plastic dolphins or gummy fish


1. Lightly coat the entire cake with a thin layer of blue frosting. Swirl extra blue frosting on two thirds of the cake to create the ocean with waves and a curvy shoreline. Add whitecaps by squirting white frosting through a pastry bag (or plastic bag).

2. To make the sandy beach, sprinkle graham cracker crumbs on the remaining third of the cake (the crumbs will stick to the thin layer of frosting). Next, turn the cake into a bustling beach. Arrange a circle of candy rocks around a candle bonfire.

3. Add Hawaiian dancers, a candy flower path, plastic palm trees, Fruit Stripe gum surfboards, plastic swimmers, Lifesavers tubes, sour tape beach blankets, and paper parasols (umbrellas). Don't forget to stock the ocean with edible and decorative sea creatures.

This is a great cake to make with your family and great for any occasion! Have fun!
