I am looking for different ways to make coral for a sea shell style cake. I would really appreciate any type of methods. Also there is a cake that I was fascinated by the coral on it, It may have come from here on CC, wondering if anyone knows how this was done. Thanks

I am not sure how they did the coral on this particular cake but I do know that not too very long ago someone on here had a post that was about making coral using crushed ice and chocolate melts. If I read it correctly they said they melted the chocolate in the colors they wanted and poured it over the ice so that it made that nice coral texture. Since the chocolate will harden very quickly in the cold. You may be able to do a search and pull the topic up. Sorry I don't have the link for you. icon_cry.gif Its been a while. Good luck to you icon_smile.gif

I used the crushed ice and it works great. Just put your ice in like a pie plate and pipe you melted chocolate onto the ice in the shape of coral. It hardens quickly and you can just lift it right off!!!
