the easiest way is using a chocolate mold... go online at google or yahoo.. and search seashells chhocolate molds.. simply use candy melts...

The seashells on this cake, I made using candy melts and a mold. I then carved parts of it so the shells looked more hollow inside. I shaded them with petal dust.

me, too, on the candy melts. I've only done them twice and that's what I used.

I agree with the chocolate molds and candy melts. That's how I made black spiders for a spiderman cake (http://www.cakesandkids.com).

Candy melts and molds.

I just made 800 seashells for a wedding. You can "paint" the chocolate on the inside of the mold for a hollow shell or fill the mold for a solid one.
