I have a friend that wants me to do her wedding cake and she picked a cake with seashells and starfish. The picture she has she got from some site (that I can't see it up close without joining the wedding site.) but the description says the seashells and starfish are made from white chocolate... where do I go to learn to do this? The wedding is not until Sept so I have time to learn icon_smile.gif

Shelley I made shells and starfish for a flip flop cake I made for my grand daughter. I found the mold at Hobby Lobby and then ordered another one from Country Kitchen Sweetart. I found it came out wonderful when I swirled the choclate slightly and poured it in. I also just squeezed some randomly in the mold and then filled with the white chocolate. Easy to do and looks great when you get it done. Good luck.

I did a cake with seashells and starfish and I made them out of white chocolate. I just bought the molds and then poured the melted chocolate into the molds and then brushed with shimmer dust when they dried. I think I got the molds from global sugar art.

Oh, Shelley! Just a couple of weeks ago, I did the same thing for my niece's wedding cake. I picked up the chocolate molds at my local cake supply store. Just as Gigiofknb described, it's easy to do. When I finished molding the chocolate pieces, I sprayed them with Pearl Edible Luster Spray to give them a little shimmer. Good luck with your project. HTH

I just bought a mold from Michael's and used it. Swirling two colors is easy and turns out very pretty. It's also nice to dust them with some luster dust or pearl spray. For my sister's wedding, we also used the mold and swirled her colors of coral and cream and placed crushed almonds on the back before the chocolate fully set. These made for very pretty and tasty favors. HTH!

I've used the seashell mold from Michael's as well. I've swirled white chocolate w/various colors of candy melts. I've swirled white & dark chocolate together. I've swirled the peanut butter melts w/chocolate melts.

That mold is super easy and has been used countless times.

That's what I did, too. You don't need much shimmer dust, and don't be afraid to use two different colors for a great look! I used some gold to get into the indents then used a pearl to shine 'em up!

Awesome!!! You guys make it sound so easy! For someone who's never made and candy, I think I can do this! I'll be practicing and show you how it turns out, THANKS SO MUCH!!
