A couple months ago my friend Vina asked me to make her daughter’s birthday cake. She wanted pineapple and it was a luau themed party. That’s all the info I got. Then Tayun (Vina’s daughter) sent me cake idea pictures. I almost died. One was a two-tier fondant covered cake with gum paste, hand painted orchids. Another was white fondant with a surfer made from modeling chocolate. Ummm…what did Vina tell her daughter I can make?!?!
