The Islands Are Calling: Tropical Cake Designs

Growing up in Northern Minnesota taught me to appreciate tropical getaways. When the ground is covered in three feet of snow for months, it helps to imagine myself basking on a beach with an umbrella drink in hand. 

Creating a party paradise is what our island-inspired collection is all about. With bright, festive colors and exotic tropical icons, these designs serve up a mini-vacation vibe. Dive into an oasis of pink flamingos, pineapples and tiki totems and start creating show-stopping cakes. Accent your designs with lush palm leaves, pretty hibiscus flowers, and metallic gold pineapples. Great for birthdays, bachelorette parties, barbecues, even baby showers, this theme is both laid-back and energizing—the perfect combination for a first-class ticket to fun. To illustrate the versatility, check out the dramatic sophistication of our Tropical Dream wedding cake. See how broadly this theme extends?



The vibrant colors and bold images offer tremendous flexibility. I love the playful spirit of our new Tropical Party Signature DecoSet® and the design is super easy to create. The pink flamingo floaty alongside a beachfront tiki bar is spot-on for tapping into the incredibly popular inner child trend. Even cooler? There’s a built-in keepsake—your customers have a flamingo can floaty to save and remember the day. 


The islands are calling your customers, so get ready to whisk them away to new tropical cake destinations. We’ll be the wind in your sails.

About the Decorator


Hi, I’m Tina. I caught the cake decorating bug early by helping my Mom. She wasn’t great at making roses, even Dad’s were better, so I kept practicing until I was the best rose maker in the family. Soon I started creating cakes for friends and family, and eventually worked as a cake decorator and Team Lead in Bakery at SuperTarget. Now I work at DecoPac as a cake decorator and designer supervisor, managing a team of cake decorators, designing cakes, and sharing tips in tutorial videos. I’m completely self-taught, and enjoy learning from other cake decorators.
