I made this kit kat surfer cake for my nephew Timmy who is turning 6! It is a vanilla cake with raspberry mousse filling, covered in blue buttercream frosting with a kit kat border surrounding the cake. I used the buttercream to style a wave and added a bit of food coloring to get the darker blue color in the waves.
For the wave and ocean on top of the cake, I used buttercream frosting. This worked surprisingly well because the buttercream crusts and holds its shape! The little surfer guy I found at my local cake store stuck to the frosting and I don’t have to worry about him falling off. I used some americolor bright blue with a small paint brush and painted it on the buttercream before it had crusted. I love how it turned out, and especially that I didn’t have to carve a cake or cover it in fondant to make a great looking wave!
I think the kit kats look a little like an old beach fence, and the kids can’t wait to get a slice with their very own kit kat.
