i made this cake for my bestfriend who loves the beach for his 16 birthday. he loved the cake so much and acually never ate it,he kept it in his fridge for a month until his mom made him throw it out! The cake has seashells, slippers, a crab, a starfish, a set of footprints. the sand is a mixture of sugar and brown sugar. To make the waves i frosted the blue then came in with white frosting on a toothpick to blend it in. For the coral reef i just piped along the bottom of the ocean with 3 different tips.
