I was asked to make a beach themed cake for the girlfriend of a friend of mine and this is the outcome:
For the sand I used soft brown sugar, yellow sugar sprinkles and some ordinary white sugar and blitzed it for a few times in my little blender.
I used ivory sugar paste for the shell moulds and once they were dry I painted them.
I meant to do a goldfish on the side…. but it turned into an octopus for some reason.
Everything apart from the deckchair, the sunbrella and the candles was edible. And it all got eaten according to my friend!
