Tips For Creating A Sandcastle Wedding Cake
When choosing a beach theme I think of a beautifully decorated Sandcastle Cake.
Who says your cake has to be edible? You could create your own exquisite castle design by covering a Styrofoam form. This cake will be used as a decoration for your guests to view and used for the cake cutting ceremony.
The smaller top tier can be made of yellow cake mix that you and your
hubby will serve each other during the cake cutting ceremony. Have your
baker, a friend or family member make a sheet cake that will be cut up
to serve your guests. The cake can have a whatever filling and icing you and your husband like. You can even have the frosting made in the same color as your color pallet or you can have the decorated with gram cracker crumbs to resemble sand. This is an inexpensive method to have a beautiful
cake at a lower cost.
The above creation was easy and fun to decorate. Gluing two oatmeal
boxes and several cardboard tubes to a cardboard base made this
sandcastle wedding decoration. It was then carefully coated with modge
podge (you can use any white glue) and sprinkle with oatmeal. Then
spread another coat of modge podge and sprinkle with a mixture of white
sand and white glitter. Once that step is completed and dry, glue on
the shells, starfish, artificial flowers and greenery and any other
beach ornaments you choose. Then place the completed decoration on a
raised base and decorate with turquoise netting, pearls, white lights
and a fish net. You will be delighted with the results. Obviously this sandcastle wedding cake is for show and not eating.
This cake was created for it’s beach wedding theme and was eaten by the wedding guests. Four different sized round yellow cakes were baked, placed on top of each other and then a thin coat of icing was spread on each layer. Before the icing was dry, graham cracker crumbs were pulverized in a blender and sprinkled over the icing creating a sand effect. Seashells were then pressed into the icing and the cake was placed on a silver tray with the remaining grand cracker crumbs spread about to create a look of the cake being placed upon the sand.
These creations are not difficult to make and in addition to using the above ornaments you can place a ceramic anchor tied to string for an added beach effect. With varying designs and inspired thoughts you can create a magnificent sandcastle wedding cake to dazzle your guests.
