Adding Chocolate Candy to a Cake

by Diane
(Philadelphia, PA)

I am having a destination bridal shower for my niece. There is a bakery in my area that makes delicious white cakes with a white butter icing. I bought seashell candy molds. I want to add the white chocolate seashells on top and around the sides of the cake. I also want to add crushed vanilla wafers to the base of the cake to give the look of sand. My question is can I add the chocolate candy pieces to the cake with using a can icing as a glue, will this stick, and is it best to do while the cake is at room temperature.

Chocolate Candy Sea Shells
by: Ann Neal

I created a cake for a beach themed wedding and I used orange and dark chocolate candy melts for the sea shell molds. I applied them directly on the cake. The wedding cake was frosted with cream chesse icing, so I did not have to apply any icing to keep them in place. I would suggest applying a small amout of the melted candy to adhere to the cake, whether chilled or at room temperature.

Can't wait to see the cake.
