CA Beach Scene with Ants

This cake was for Carrie's birthday. Carrie is from CA and she worked in a lab in college for a semester that did some research on ants. I had a lot of help for this cake, from my boyfriend Adam and my friend Paulo. We decided to create a beach scene with a palm tree to remind Carrie of California. We added the ants in for fun. The palm tree trunk is made out of chocolate chips. The rest is vanilla icing dyed using food coloring. We also added in some sugar crystals to create the sun as well as to give the sand some texture.
