Even though summer is coming to an end... you can have crabs year round with this cake. A friend of mine emailed me this cake and said it was done for a bridal shower.I would like to try this...Would some tell me where to start...

For the height of the cake I would do two or three cake layers...cakeboard...two or three more layers of cakes.

Ice in what looks like red crusting buttercream, smooth out and add strips of textured strips of fondant(you can buy a grainer here: http://www.globalsugarart.com/product.php?id=16677) hand paint with brown gel coloring.

Make crabs a few days ahead of time(they look like they are hand painted)

Make mallets and corn on the cob from RKT covered in fondant.

Sand can be Brown sugar.

I would make the crabs out of fondant or gum paste - probably fondant for me, I like working with that more.

I am sure you could actually add a more detailed wood grain to the sides as well for a more realistic look.

Best of luck, would love to see the finished result.
