A friend and I made this cake for our other friend’s 30th birthday. And, if I do say so myself, it is pretty epic.

How to Make: A Sandcastle Cake

A friend and I made this sandcastle cake for a surprise 30th birthday party. We were both pretty impressed with how it turned out so I thought I would share how to make it. Blogging about it was a bit of an afterthought though so apologies for the lack of ‘in progress’ photos!
