Boy, this should be a cinch for me them. That shaking/jerking motion is usually how my hand is going when I'm trying to get the straight line..... LOL

I did a birthday beach cake, no near as nice as this one though! I used white chocolate to make shells. I think I even found the molds at Joann's or Michael's. For the coral, I used chocolate again, then sprinkled it with sanding sugar before it set for texture. It was an easy cake to do.

Classy cakes, you sound like you make the fondant yourself. I will be using ready made fondant so I may not be able to mix melted choc. Akgirl10, like your cake! What is sanding sugar by the way?

Yes, I make all my own fondant except for black which I order in.

It's coarse sugar, not fine like granulated. Although granulated would probably work well if you wanted a less "rustic" look.

how do you stick on the sugar?

Sprinkle it on while your royal icing or chocolate is still wet.

Also, how do you paint on / colour white choc shells? When doing the royal iced coral, how can I make sure it doesn't snap when taking off the paper?

my wedding cake was 3 tiers and its was very simple, white fondant white red and silver hearts cascading down the tiers, all tiers were sponge. i paid £300 and the work would have been nothing in camparison to a cake as detailed as this!
i dont know anything about pricing cakes but i personally would pay more for that cake! thumbs_up.gif

How wonderful of you to take the time to answer questions with such detail. And what a beautiful cake.

When I made a beach theamed wedding cake used ground up graham crackers for the sand.  Much tastier than sanding sugar.
