Cakes for a Luau themed party

My oldest son's school is throwing a party for their teachers, and they ask the parents to donate what they can. So, I did what I love to do (besides writing) and made a couple cakes.







I loved that the theme was for a luau, because I got to have fun with bright, summery, warm-feeling decorations. Chicago has had quite the frigid spring, so making these cakes was like putting a breath of fresh air in the house. :)

Thanks, all! I love making them. It's hard work, but fun at the same time. :)

And, yes, they're real shells because I didn't have the energy to make shells from chocolate or fondant. Though after srubbing them in the sink, I begin to wonder... :)

Also, yes, Beth, it's brown sugar over the frosting to simulate sand. It wasn't easy to get it to spread evenly, either. :)
