Skylar was having a beach themed Sweet 16th Birthday party. She wanted a 3 tiered cake in that theme in blue and white.
I made 2 tier's with vanilla cake and 1 with chocolate and covered and filled it with vanilla italian buttercream icing. I made all the shells and starfish out of gumpaste and painted them with a mixture of brown food coloring paste and vodka to give them a more realistic look. The coral was made of royal icing.
