This seashell cake was a bridal shower cake that I recently did. The maid of honor ordered these gorgeous edible white chocolate sea shells from another vendor, but I made the coral and the edible "sand". The bottom cake is a 12" chocolate cake with homeade raspberry filling and the top tier is vanilla cake with a French vanilla custard filling and the frosting is a Swiss Meringue.
The function hall for the Bridal shower didn't have air conditioning and that is why the cake is so shiny! The Swiss Meringue is durable but it did get really soft in the August humidity.
