This is a fully iced cake with texture to give it a wave look for this beach theme cake. I made the seashells and starfish out of gumpaste. Thanks to Confetti cakes book I was able to make these seashells with out having to come up with my own techniques. I didn't add much deco because the bride wanted to add on the seashells herself and if you noticed the cake topper... The bride also made this out of polymer clay. At first I thought she made it out of gumpaste or fondant but turns out she used clay. I thought it looked cute and tried my best to work around her cake topper.
The cake is a yellow cake with chocolate buttercream filling all made from scratch.
