I am doing a cake for my sister's 25th anniversary next year (May) I would like to do a 3-tiered ocean theme cake with sculpted shells, sand dollars, seahorses, etc. Does anyone know where I can find candy molds that are fairly detailed that would work well? Also, does anyone know how to make white chocolate coral? It looks fairly easy, but I'm concerned about the strength. Thanks!
Try Alohamolds.com..They have great molds for soaps and chocolates.
Thanks so very much for the site info. I had been searching all over the web for molds, and this one didn't even come up on the search engines. This is great, just what I need.
When I did a cake with shells, I made the molds using real seashells. I used gumpaste to make the molds. This way they looked exactly like real seashells.
I have found a lot of good molds at candylandcrafts.com
Hope this helps.
I made coral by dipping grape stems in white choc.
Try First Impression molds..they are very detailed and of good quality.
Thanks so much for all the wonderful hints. I'm sure my sister's cake will turn out beautiful thanks to all of you! If I can, I'll post the picture. The anniversary isn't until late May, so I have plenty of time to practice. (And eat the mistakes!!!)
Your cake is one of the best I've ever seen. You can tell you put in a lot of hard work into it. Just beautiful.
I can't find first impressions?
Some of my nicest seashell molds are from this company. Good quality silicone molds.
Here is a nice Sea Urchin mold.
And another with a nice assortment but check the sizes because these are smallish.
And here are some I made of gumpaste with some of the molds from Martins.
Another one I had completely forgotten about. Check the left hand menu for all of their molds, they have some great things beside seashells.
Dana I love your sea shell cake. I am trying to create something similar for our wedding in may. How did you colour the shells? It is an amazing cake
pohlmanscakes.com has great food safe silicone molds for sea shells plus molds for many flowers, western themes, etc.
Be sure any mold you use is food safe!
