This is the cake I made today for a lovely young girl. My first shell cake!
Although it was quite challenging to make the lid of the shell stay opened and I had to re do it two times and fix everything that got broken when the lid fell down, it still became my pride and joy. :) I absolutely love this cake.
The upper part of the shell is cardboard covered in sugar paste.
I dusted the whole cake with cocoa powder and gold luster to achieve the shell effect and I used brown sugar for the sand.
Here comes the forth picture of the cake! you get how proud I am right?:))
