Decorating white chocolate seashells

I am making a wedding cake in June and I will be decorating with white chocolate seashells. I have found several websites to purchase them but I would like to try to make them myself. I haven't been able to find any instructional guides on how to go about decorating them. I was hoping someone could help me find something to help me.

Sea Shells
by: Kathy

Here is a cake I made for a beach wedding. I made all my sea shells with the sea shell candy molds and took a paint brush and put sparkle dust on them to make them shine. The sand I used was vanilla wafer cookies chopped up fine. For the coral I printed out a picture on the computer and took my candy bottle with the small tip and outlined the coral on the paper and let it set and then peeled it off the paper. Everything on this cake is edible. Hope this helped you some.
Good Luck. I transported this cake all the way to Delaware from Pa.

I would suggest the candy molds too.
Michael's and Hobby Lobby carry them and they are under $3 each.

Also you might check e-bay and Amazon and see if they have a better deal on them.

shell molds
by: bamagrama

I made a beach wedding cake last March. I have it posted on this site. It is called "beach inspired wedding cake". I used very easy to use molds ordered from the internet. There are several cake decorating sites to choose from. You can order several molds for very little money. You can use Wilton candy melts or real white chocolate. The candy melts are much cheaper and taste nearly the same. You melt the pieces in the microwave at 10 second intervals, stiring between each time, until completely melted. Don't overheat as the chocolate begins to separate. At this point you can add color if you wish, then simply spoon into the molds and level. Put into refridgerator for about 15 minutes, then pop out of the molds, slightly bending the mold to loosen the shells. You can lightly dust with luster dust at this point. I used it on all of the shells that I made. Good luck! I had never used candy molds before I used them for my cake. They are extremely easy to use.
