Beachy Bridal Shower

Can it really be that the summer is almost over?!? I know it officially lasts until September 21st, but this weekend marks the end of the beach-going season...so I think I better get all of my beachy and nautical cakes from this past summer up on the blog this week! :)

This cake and accompanying cupcakes were made for a bride-to-be in Brookville, NY whose beach themed bridal shower given to her by her family at her aunt's beautiful home was one of the most beautifully set up I have ever seen!

Here is the cake topper:

This sweet little cake was tres leche with caramel buttercream. It was covered in a light pink fondant and decorated with graham cracker sand. The coral was painted on white food color and the shells, starfish and pearls were made of fondant.  The starfish toppers were actually purchased at Michaels (since all the ones I attempted making kept breaking because they were so large!). I added the fondant top hat, bow tie & pearls and used white tulle to make the veil.

The cupcakes were a mix of lemon with cream cheese frosting, s'mores with fluff filling and white chocolate buttercream frosting and tres leche with caramel buttercream.

The cupcakes were topped with graham cracker sand and fondant toppers of shells and starfish, which were dusted with edible luster dust for a little sparkle!

Wishing all the happiness in the world to the bride and groom to be! :)
