Gumpaste Anthuriums and Chocolate Seashells
This cake was done for a bridal shower but it was actually more of a reception cake as the bride and groom had gone off and gotten married in St. Lucia then returned home to celebrate with friends and family. The cake design idea came from the bride's original bouquet of red anthuriums and the tropical location of their wedding. The anthuriums on this cake are made of gumpaste and the seashells are molded from white chocolate. The "sand" is made of crushed vanilla cookies.
