I'm making this beach cake tomorrow. I'm using brown sugar for the sand and piping gel for the water. But do I have to much stuff on the cake?
But I would love to do this on the water around the bottom. But would that be over doing it?
Or should I follow the beach line down the side of the cake and just do a small part of water with the fish?
Well I am far from being an expert, but I really like the set up you have and personally would not change it=) It looks like it is going to be a cute cake, can't wait to see the pic of it!! GL, Jen
nice composition and design.
tho' I think your MISSING something ---
the toasted/roasted sunbather laying on the blanket
I think it would look good to put water around the sides of the lower tier.
You don't have too much
Did you see the little lawn chair they have? I think it has a hat and towel on it.
If you are using brown sugar for the sand, mix in about 2 TBSP meringue powder with 1 1lb box of brown sugar and shake shake shake. That gives you a more sand-like appearance and use piping gel to spread as a base then spoon the sugar mixture onto the gel and let dry. (I was in the Under the Sea cake class with Nick Lodge this weekend and that was his suggestion -- which worked very well I might add!)
Oh yea, I forgot to mention, I use Graham crackers for the sand and that works too and won't be so sweet.
Thanks everyone. I am making it later today. I'm hoping it comes out as good as my paper did, LOL!
Your idea is much cuter.
I love the pre-set up! Such a good idea. I think it will be great!
Can I ask -- did you tape the paper around stryofoam dummies? Or around the cake pans? That's a great idea for engineering the cake by the way!
I like the first one.
I have made the sand before with white chocolate and a small amount of chocolate and then grated it. It taste good too.
