Bikini Cake

Now that summer is in full swing, I'm sure that some of you are throwing parties to celebrate the season. The cake below can be decorated as a bikini or as an underwear set for lingerie showers. (This example was made by our talented friend Liz for an engagement party.) You just need a standard rectangular cake pan, cake batter, and a steady hand. Bake the cake and cut as shown. Then you are free to decorate it any way you like. When Liz made the cake she cut the bottoms down so they would be a little bit skimpier. (In case you are having a hard time seeing, the triangular shapes that are left over after cutting the bottom are flipped to create the top portion of the bikini.) Warning: The icing is not easy to apply! Take your time on the raw edges. - LG

I thought this was SO cute, so I decided to make it for my husbands birthday. You weren't kidding about frosting it. It was not a joke. :) I would love to know how you got yours so perfect!!! Mine came out really cute, but there were crumbs all in the frosting. Again, how did you avoid this?? I used light yellow frosting and put red polka dots all over it. It was simple and really adorable. I think hubby will be pleased. Thanks for sharing!!
