I want to make a sea theme cake and was wondering how i make sea stars and shells to add as decorations on the cake?
I have used chocolate molds to do this before. I have a few cakes on my website.
I have brought shell molds in the candy and soap areas of Michael's and Hobby Lobby. I use white chocolate to make them look more realistic.
thank you, do you know where to get molds from?
i got all these chocolate molds you are talking about(all sea molds,etc)from a little bakery not too far from me. she has all kinds. anything you want to make.lol i have purchased chocolate molds on line from , i think, candyland crafts dot com. try looking that up. they have lots of molds too.
thank you i will.
I too will be making a scuba/sea cake in a few weeks and I just purchased several chocolate molds in the "sea" theme from www.candymoldcentral.com.
Please post a picture when you're done.
ok i will. i looked at the website you listed and they have alot of choices. But they were out of large starfish molds. i have been searching for one.
I made starfish out of gumpaste. I then took a fondant gumpaste tool (the one with a hook type end, but any one to create a round shape worked), and made little holes in the starfish to add texture.
How big of a starfish are you looking for?
I just did a beach themed cake last week and used chocolate molds for the shells. I did some solid white and I also put a couple of pieces of light cocoa chips and swirled it for a more realistic look. There's a pic in my album.
The candy molds are awesome for shells, starfish, etc. I've also found larger starfish and shells in the soap mold section at Hobby Lobby (Michael's, etc.).
thank you so much for all your comments. they have helped me a lot.
I just got some seashell molds from firstimpressionmolds.com the detail is AMAZING. The seashells look totally real. I think if I picked them up I could hear the ocean.
First Impression Molds has a ton of great sea-type molds.
Ditto on the chocolate moulds!
