Beach Bridal Shower Cake


It’s still shark week, and this time I have a cake.  This one isn’t a shark (though I’ve done that before), but the beach!

I made this one for a co-worker’s surprise bridal shower (best “staff meeting” ever!)  We decided to go with a beach theme, so I made this fun beach cake!

I didn’t know the bride-to-be’s favorite cake flavor, so I played it safe with vanilla.  I decorated the cake with buttercream frosting with crushed graham crackers (with a touch of crushed oreos leftover from the swimming fish dirt cups for depth) .  Then I made various shells out of marshmallow fondant and painted with gold luster dust.
