In need of recipe....theme cake

We are having an Aloha event at my church this weekend and I am looking for a specfic cake recipe that I saw in a magazine a couple years ago... It used blue tinted frosting that was spread on thickly to resemble waves and then I candy to make the fish/sea creatures and what have ya....only problem, I dont remember what it said to use to make the sea creatures and I can't remember how they did the sand (although I imagine crushed cookies would work) Anyone have any ideas?

~~Thanks

Goldfish crackers? Or use fruit leather cut into fish shapes?

This is the first one that came to mind. I found it on Woman's Day.


If you can, post a pic of your cake too!

Hope you have a great time

http://jas.familyfun.go.com/recipefi...splay?id=50216 When I read your post, this is the cake that came to mind. We made it a few years ago for a Nemo party. It's really cute. The fish are as suggested in the other posts and the 'rocks' are candy you can buy in the mall at bulk candy stores. HTH.

The sand is finely crushed graham crackers. I also have the recipe that I got out of magazines years ago. I actually made one when we did the Ocean themed VBS, but didn't have a camera to take pics.

You can try finely crushing vanilla wafers for sand and various gummy sea creatures are out there for purchase.
