OCEAN THEME CAKE

The flavor of this cake is by far my most favorite of all!! 4 layers of lemon chiffon cake with three different filling layers; lemon curd, lemon buttercream, and lemon mousse. Can you tell I like lemon?
The birthday girl loves the ocean and ocean themes. I made the shells, pearls, and grass out of gumpaste, the coral out of royal icing, and the pebbles are chocolate candies.
The cake is covered with three colors of fondant (green, blue, white) swirled together and is supposed to resemble the movement of the ocean.
Sure wish I had some leftovers of this cake!!

It's so pretty! I love the marbling effect! And the shine on the shells! Did you brush them with luster dust? They're so beautiful!

Yes, I used super pearl luster dust on the shells as well as the coral. Thanks for your sweet comment.

Thanks for the Alice Medrich chocolate tip. My best friend from high school actually took classes from her when she was relatively unknown in Berkeley. I think her shop was called Le Cocolate. She still has the handouts from those days. I'm ordering the book you suggested.
