Flip Flop Cake - Test Run

This morning I decided to have a test run of a flip flop cakes.  I used a cake mix and baked it in a 13x9 pan and let it cool.  Next came the weird part.  I used a template from the Betty Crocker site and if you see the pictures, you can see the problem I had.


Something doesn't look like it would match up.  I tried, but frustrated and decided to trace a pair of my flip flops on paper.


Those look much better!


You tell me what shapes look better....

Cake is cooled and leveled off a bit.


Flip Flops...cut out then chilled in the freezer for one hour, that is really important!!


Crumb coated with white frosting.  Then chilled in the freezer for one hour, that is really important, don't skip that part!


Next I used a can and half of white frosting and tinted it green, eh..not to fond of it.  I need something brighter.


Then I used two blue Twizzlers.  I cut about 1 inch off the end.  Then cut up 3/4 the way up with craft scissors and inserted it to make the straps.



Then used Wilton Confetti to decorate.


Colored Twizzlers.....Whew...the blue one is strong tasting....Not my kind of flavor...LOL


It is now cooling in the freezer until Miss V gets home!


Edited to add:  She loved it! I do want to change the color of the flip flop since I learned how to make edible confetti.  I think I am going to use more tropical colors.  Not to bad for a trial run.

Has anyone used Americolor gels in the bottle?  If so is it easier than the Wilton tubs of gel color?

Erin it was soooo simple! Just make sure to freeze the cake in between cutting and icing. It makes it much easer to frost.
