Surf and Sky: Beach Mini Cake

I taught a beginner's fondant class for my Domestic Science Club gals last night.  We did three-tiered mini cakes.  (To make four mini cakes out of a 9"x12" cake, cut the cake into two layers, then six squares.)  Surf and sky is the design that I came up with for my cake.  I was originally going to cover the cake in yellow for a beach instead of green, but I'm glad I didn't so I could use the yellow for the sun on top.  I used a scalloped circle cookie cutter for the top, then I cut the rest out by hand with a knife.  This simple design is perfect for a beach- or summer-themed party.
