The Partiologist: This Way to the Beach!

This Way to the Beach!

There are two kinds of people, pool people and beach people.  Which are you?  I would say, in a perfect world I would be lying by the pool looking out over the ocean.  I like to keep things nice and tidy by the pool, no sand on my towel or stuck to my feet.  At the same time, looking out at the never ending ocean is so peaceful and entertaining.
 
Today I'm bringing a little sand into the kitchen, so to speak, with my version of a sand castle cake and cake balls.
 
Sandy Peanut Butter Cake Balls

A perfect way to spend the day on the beach... eating peanut butter cake balls.

After rolling my chocolate cake balls, I dipped them in melted peanut butter candy melts.  Yes, Wilton makes PEANUT BUTTER candy melts!

 Immediately sprinkle with raw sugar for the sand and top with a tiny beach umbrella.
 
While walking along the beach, getting sand in my toes, I came across the sand castle cake.
I love when someone builds a sand castle and you can eat it.
And you know ice cream is the perfect way to cool down in the heat.
 
Little scoops of French vanilla ice cream filled my bucket, ready to be served with the Sand Castle Cake.
 
Freeze scoops of ice cream on a plate, remove and fill the bucket and sprinkle with raw sugar.
I've saved a spot just for you!
 
Like I said, I'm a pool person, so how about heading to the pool this weekend and...
 
Beat the Heat!

  3. I'm a beach girl, don't care for chlorine. I'm including a link to your Sandy Peanut Butter Cake Balls in my next "Stuff I've Gotta Share and You've Gotta See" post on Tuesday. They are such a clever idea. I've never thought of using raw sugar as "sand" before.
