I made this cake for my youngest sister who was in town visiting from Florida. It is an 8" double layer chocolate box cake with 8" single layer "lid". The lid has her first initial "E" on the top. The shells are made with sugar and water packed in a mold. The pearls were supposed to be fondant, but my daughter needed my attention before I finished making them and they dried on me. So I used my Grandmother's pearls. I know if she were still with us she would have loved the addition.
