I am planning on my making my friends wedding cake as their gift. This will be my second wedding cake I have made, my own being my first. They would like a sandcastle cake. I am confident I can do this and it will loook great! I would like some tips tho. I plan on using graham cracker crumbs for the sand effect and some white chocolate seashell accents. Any and all tips are greatly appreciated.

Thanks
Stef

If you are using the crumbs, make sure you use an icing that doesn't crust quickly. You'll need time to ice then time to stick them to the sides.

I like to mix graham cracker crumbs and crushed vanilla wafers. It gives a varied texture and color to the "sand". You can also add a touch of sanding sugar to give it a little sparkle.

ha thats so funny my friends daughter just decided on a sandcastle cake.

I had been thinking of ways to do it, and I have thought I'd use RKT for the towers would be easier than making lots of 4" cakes and stacking them.

Mine isn't due till end of Sept so if you do yours 1st please share any tips and techniques you come up with.

this is the one I'm going to recreate, well try to recreate anyway icon_smile.gif
