I was asked to make a cake for a very special 90 yr old woman, the family would love an oyster or clam shaped cake with a pearl inside. Any tips or suggestions would be so appreciated, not a clue of how to even begin this one.
Check out this one:
It looks like 2 round cakes, with the sides carved and covered in fondant. I don't know how to do it, but maybe someone else does. Or PM the poster.
It is a start anyway. HTH
Happy Baking & Good Luck!
