To make the cake

To decorate

  • Make buttercream by mixing together butter, icing sugar and milk.
  • Once buttercream starts to take form (creamy and forms semi-stiff peaks), add blue food coloring. Mix until tinted.
  • Scoop 2/3 of your buttercream into a piping bag and frost 6 of your circular mini cakes. Add an unfrosted circular mini cake on top.
  • Using an offset spatula, frost the top of each cake.
  • Add brown sugar to act as “sand” on top of each cake.
  • Using your fondant mold, create seashells with your purple and green fondant. To achieve a perfect seashell mold, take a small portion of your fondant and press it evenly into your desired shape. Pop out and place two on top of each cake.
  • Serve and enjoy!
