Cake is iced in white chocolate SMBC and textured with a paintbrush. I carved the wave shape out of the bottom tier and poured it onto a foil mold with isomalt. The turtles, fish and coral are painted onto wafer paper and clear isomalt was poured over top. I made the seashell mold from some shells I borrowed from my neighbor and then made them out of modeling chocolate/gumpaste and painted them. Hibiscus are gumpaste.
In all honesty, the sand is my favorite part because I loved how real it looked LOL!
Go ahead...Bake My Day!
