Bright & textured tropics
Top tier is painted with cocoa butter and piped with royal icing. Separators are Flexique covered wafer paper and cut into circles. Bottom tier is wafer paper painted with cocoa butter. The shells are modeling chocolate/gumpaste from a handmade mold from real shells I borrowed from my neighbor and flowers are gumpaste. I learned many of the techniques in a class by Sharon of Curiaussity cakes.
