Use this step by step tutorial to make an easy beach cake that’s perfect for Summer. It’s decorated with homemade chocolate seashells and brown sugar sand.
It’s been such a GLOOMY and RAINY Summer but this easy beach cake is sure to brighten your spirits!
Miraculously, a few days ago, the sun was FINALLY out and SHINING brightly.
So, we went to the beach and had a BLAST, splashing in the clear blue water.
My little one DIDN’T even want to leave…he’s such a water baby 😉
On the drive back, I told my hubby that I have an AWESOME idea for a Summer cake.
Hubby just gave me that FUNNY look and said: “I thought so and I am sure it has something to do with the beach!” 😉
He knows me so well…LOL 😛
Anyways, everything I saw at the beach INSPIRED me to make this easy beach cake.
It’s a tall double barrel cake, covered in blue frosting that represents the sea.
I topped it off with homemade chocolate SEASHELLS and brown sugar to represent the SAND.
I also tossed some edible pearls all over the cake, just to JAZZ it up a little.
This is one of those EASY cakes that even non-cake decorators can make! 😀
I made the chocolate seashells, using a chocolate mold.
But you can also BUY them from some chocolate stores …they are kinda PRICEY though :S
So, I suggest making them yourself…Those molds are usually LESS than 5 bucks and sold on Amazon.
To make this easy beach cake, you will need the following ingredients and supplies:
– I made 2 round cakes and each cake had dimensions of 6×3.
And here are the steps:
Bake the cakes and allow them to cool down to room temperature.
Then, stack them on top of one another and frost the entire cake in blue buttercream icing.
Use a spatula to make a spiral design on top of the cake.
Toss some brown sugar on top of the cake.
Toss some brown sugar near the base of the cake as well.
Also, stick some edible pearls around the cake.
Now, melt white chocolate and pour it in a squeeze bottle.
Squeeze the melted chocolate into the cavities of your seashell mold.
Place this tray in the freezer for 15 minutes or until the chocolate hardens.
Then, turn the mold gently onto a tray lined with wax paper and the chocolate shells with just pop out.
Spray the chocolate shells with golden and silver color mist.
Allow the color to dry for 15-20 minutes.
Then, place the shells on top of your cake.
And you are done!
Well, that’s all for today.
