I would strip the icing white and blue and do the swirled thing ontop..Then I would try and find or make little sails like a sailboat or anchors...maybe some candymelt seashells.

Maybe some fondant life preservers with the church's name piped on them on blue and white swirled icing?

I found this site which I think has a fab idea for a nautical theme.

I would incorporate some of the Guylian Chocolate sea shells - they're available at Wally World as well as tons of other places.

I bought a box recently (needed a chocolate hazelnut fix) - they're really quite pretty. And because I'm me, I have been thinking that at some point, I need to incorporate them into a cupcake design - blue/green swirls of buttercream on one side of the cupcake for the water - beigey (colored with a little bit of Nutella) buttercream topped with natural brown sugar (for sand), and one of the chocolate seashells perched on the edge of the "water".
