Before I spend hours do an online search, does anyone know of edible gold seashells anywhere to buy? I'll probably end up having to buy edible gold foil to cover my own, huh?

Has anyone tried spraying sugar shells with a can of gold spray? (I don't have an airbrush).

Any other ideas?

I'm just trying to avoid wasting money before I do my own trials detective.gif

You can make chocolate sea shells. Head over to the soap mold department in HL, Joann's and they usually have seashell molds. Grab one and then use yellow chocolate and lust dust them w/some gold dust.

Oh yeah! But will be in July when the temps here start getting into the 100's. I'll ask her if the party is going to be outdoors.

Making my own would certainly be the least expensive!

Well, then if it's outdoors you can still use those same molds but instead of chocolate - fondant/gumpaste

I just bought some of that PME gold spray. I used it for the first time last nite on some RI pieces. It's really terrific! So much easier than painting gold w/ lustre dust!
