Like Sand Between My Toes...

So about three weekends ago, I drove about an hour up to Murrieta, California, to the Cake Cottage for their huge chocolate mold sale. I came home with over 30 molds. I bought a sea shell mold and wanted to try it out, except I used fondant instead of chocolate. The starfish are hand molded and dusted with cocoa powder. The shells were marbled with cocoa powder as well. I hated to cover the sides of this cake after getting it so smooth and the corners so sharp but it was good practice. I look forward to making many beach themed wedding cakes in the future since we will be living at the coast.

It isn't the mountains ahead that wear you out, it's the grain of sand in your shoe.
