Seashell Wedding Cake

Seahorse Cake Topper
For many years I dreamed of making a seashell wedding cake. Then I got a call from a friend telling me she wants me to make her a beach themed cake. I was thrilled!
The bride chose a Carrot recipe
and cream cheese frosting. I used 14 inch, 12 inch 10 inch and 6 inch round pans.
The shells, seahorses and coral were fashioned out of gumpaste. The tiers were stacked and frosted, then sprayed with edible color. I decorated with edible pearls and piles of gumpaste seashells.
Dreams Do Come True
The bride requested a dream catcher as part of the design, so I melted some white chocolate and some milk chocolate together and formed a dream catcher in a shape of a heart. Some chocolate seashells were added as well to give some contrast to the gumpaste.
I arrived at the wedding, which thank goodness was taking place about a 1/2 mile from my house. Everyone was speechless and really thought I ordered it from a bakery or some other place. The bride (my friend) was so overwhelmed that she did not want to cut it or eat it because she said it was so beautiful.
They actually waited till the next day to eat it. :) This is one of the best wedding cakes I have ever crafted. And it was easy. I hope you all like it.
