We are SO excited to finally have made and finished this cake and get to share it with you. Rita is having a surprise party thrown in her honor today for her 70th birthday. The party is a Luau and we made an awesome cake for it! We made a suitcase sitting on the beach with all different Hawaii items coming out of it. We really wanted to make this cake personal so we added a photo album to the back of the cake with an edible photo of her in Hawaii 16 years ago. This cake is one of our favorite cakes ever! The 15 hours put into this cake were well worth the result. The pictures Kayla took are awesome but I still think photos don't do this cake justice. Kayla's hand painting for the travel stickers on the lid of the suitcase, the inside of the photo album, on the gift tag, and on the bikini top is flawless. All the hand sculpting and hand painting that went into this cake showed such an attention to detail it's fantastic. We love this cake and we hope Rita and her family love it even more then we do. Happy 70th Birthday Rita!!!
