That was a joke for a couple of friends which name is "chicks" in french (so, it is "poussins") that's why there are chicks print in the sand !
Sand and sea are buttercream, fishes, turtle and shell are white chocolate, mats and bottle of Champaign are Marzipan.

I made this for my niece's 15th birthday.  She wanted ocean/palm beach theme.  I hope she likes it!

Top tier is vanilla BC with crushed vanilla wafers.  Bottom is fondant covered.  All cakes are chocolate with choc BC filling.  I frosted lightly the day before and let sit overnight. Also kept filling icing stiff...hope fondant does not bulge.  Waves are fondant with BC outline.  Seashells/dolphin/chair and umbrella are fondant.

This is my biggest project to date.  I am really pleased with it!

The sheet cake is a light lemon cake with raspberry filling.  The wave is carved from a white chocolate pound cake.  Frosted in buttercream, with graham cracker crumb sand.  The people are buttercream, the sand castle is made from a buttercream/graham cracker paste, and the surf board and shells are candy melts.  Footprints and "happy birth day" (for my brand new newphew's birth day (7-28-06)) were drawn in the sand.  thanks for looking!

This cake was ordered by a woman who wanted to surprise her hubby. She wanted to celebrate their anniversary by reliving their honeymoon. She wanted a beach themed cake for the occasion. The dog is a puppy that he is supposed to be giving her as an anniversary gift. If not she has an easy one to take care of now! Chocolate cake with buttercream. Fondant figures and gumpaste chairs.

I got the idea for this cake from this site.  The original one was done by CakesByEllen.  Thank you!  This is a chocolate/French vanilla cake with BC Filling and icing.  I used ice cream cones for the trees and Arrow Root cookie crumbs for the sand.  I bought the chocolate rocks at the local bulk store.

For a family beach trip...wanted chocolate shells instead the "gummy marine life"  candies, but I forgot to bring my shell mold - so the candy was the best I could find last-minute!  "Neopolitan" cake - one strawberry, one chocolate, and one white layer.  First time trying rolled BC (colored w/red kool-ade) - tasty!

This isn't as good as some of the flip flop cakes on here, but the recipient loved it!  Its a chocolate cake, covered in buttercream icing.  The flip flops are a yellow cake also covered in buttercream icing.  The "sand" is made from graham crackers which I put in the blender to make them super fine.  I wanted to make the shells from chocolate, but I ran out of time, so I had to use real ones from our last trip to the beach!

I made this one for a friend at work who likes to play volleyball.  The sand is made with brown sugar.  I don't think that this one is my best work, however, I made it the same night that my hubby had surgery on his right hand.  Anyway, she loved it!

This is a chocolate cake, with chocolate and raseberry filling...topped with chocolate frosting and covered in fondant. All details are fondant. I used plastic figurings since I was short on time, and used brown sugar for the sand look. Everyone said it was yummy, and my nephew loved it! He's a HUGE Spongebob fan!

I hate using these plastic accessories, but the customer ordered this cake for her hubby's b-day last minute and also wanted to keep the cost down (instead of being charged extra for fondant/gumpaste modeling).  Thanks to Amylou for the general idea of this cake.

It's the Wilton 'Little Hero' pan (chocolate cake) with buttercream icing, crushed graham crackers for the sand pits and piping gel over the BC for the water.  Thanks for looking!

Woweee fellow decorators!  I have just returned home from the 7pm wedding that I made this cake for.  It was my first wedding cake - not perfect but made a good impression. Pound cake with bc and chocolate sea shells.  Sand is granulated brown sugar with more chocolate sea shells.  Transport was nerve racking.  The cake was a 14",10", and 6".  The bride cried when she saw it, (tears of joy) so I guess I did okay.  Thanks for looking!

Beach layer is chocolate, castle strawberry, ball white with raspberry filling. BC frosting on all, sand is graham cracker crumbs.
