As an Island nation it is rare to visit the Seaside and not see a lighthouse. Many are now museums as more high tech solutions have made them redundant. For this collaboration I wanted to celebrate them and the important function that they originally served keeping ships safe around our shores. Another common sight at UK resorts are the wonderfully painted beach huts. The lighthouse was designed in Excel and is built out of pastillage with a straw running up the centre to run the light through. Cake dummies were used and again pastillage was used to create the base for the beach huts and the undulating roofs provide the illusion of the sea around the lighthouse. The lighthouse is airbushed and topped off with a Saracino sun with faces either side. Gumpaste was used to decorate the beach huts and so many us have written in the sand when visiting the seaside. I hope that you like it.
