Something Summereee and Fun

When my sweet friends only request it to make something sweet and summereeee for our weekend in SD, the first thing that comes to my mind is COCONUT!!

I didn't have as much time as I wish I did, so I did a funfetti mix (c'mon, you know it reminds you of carefree childhood), added some extra vanilla and made my own butter cream frosting.

I was so glad to take it to my cake decorating class where we made roses, which I love! These are made with Buttercream, not fondant-much more delicious!

I added LOTS of toasted coconut between the layers:

The crumb coat, then into the fridge:

Something about lime green is so refreshing and reminiscent of summer:

Making it smooth:

Adding the details of red roses, blue leaves and yellow accents! I love mixing up the colors!!!

Had to have a piece for the hubs before I left with the girrrrrls:

Cheers to coconut and a weekend with the ladies!




  1. That cake was YUMMY! And I love that you made all of the decor out of frosting. BUTTER CREAM frosting no-less. Keep up the good work tipsy baker!

  2. Looks beautiful! Weekends away with the girls sounds like so much fun. I want to come visit you sometime! Let me know if that would be possible. xx Amanda
