Beach Themed Wedding Cake

beach themed wedding cakeI baked a three-tiered white cake, iced and filled with vanilla buttercream icing. Each tier was torted into 4 layers. The base icing was ivory with white cornelli lace piped over it in a large design to mimic the coral. The seashells and the coral were made by melting white chocolate and coloring it with paste food colors. I hand painted the details into the shell molds before pouring the melted chocolate. After they were set, {about 5 minutes in the fridge},they were unmolded and dusted with "luster dust", a very fine sugar. The coral, I piped out of the corner of a zip-lock bag in a free-hand design onto waxed paper. {This had to be removed from the waxed paper with gloves to prevent it from melting due to my body temperature}. The starfish were made the same way as the seashells. The large clam shell on the top of the cake {Topper}, I made out of marshmallow fondant. Inside, I set double wedding rings in royal icing. {They were the only parts of the cake that were not edible}. I also made the sand dollars and pearls with the marshmallow fondant. I assembled the cake at the reception hall. All of the cake decorations were carried in a cooler. The topper was the only part that I had to make well in advance, {1 week} to allow for the fondant to dry enough to assemble the clam shell. I "glued" it together with royal icing and helped support the weight of the top part of the shell by placing small white chocolate seashells inside.

Seaside Wedding Cake

seaside wedding cakeThe cakes were mud cakes. I made the shells myself by first making the molds with sugar paste and pressing real shells into it before it went hard. I then pressed more sugar paste into the molds. It turned out quite good.

Wedding at the Beach Cake

All tires had cream cheese filling and were frosted with chocolate buttercream.

The bottom tier was covered with chocolate fondant and the other 2 tiers with vanilla marshmallow fondant with the colors she picked.

All the star fishes, sea horses and shells were made of candy melts and colored by hand.

The coral was piped with royal icing.

The pearls on the board were made of fondant, one by one.
