A Swimming Good Time

My son, for his 4th birthday, requested a "waterpark cake". As luck would have it, I had just recieved a magazine, with this cake on the cover.

This was a difficult cake to put together. The top layer of the cake had a cutout section, shaped like a jelly bean. I put the two layers together and poured almost set jello into the cutout. I piped little swimsuits onto teddy grahams, and used blue M&Ms for the border. The water slide is heated Airhead candy, shaped and positioned, with melted white chocolate to fill it. Blue sprinkles on top simulate water. The sand is graham cracker crumbs. This was a big hit, with children and parents alike.
