I made this Sand castle wedding cake for my wonderful friends, James and Lauren.
They got married at Saunton Sands Hotel on 16th April 2016.
The sand castle theme was chosen by them and everyone commented on how great the cakes fitted
with their beach wedding.
The cake was made up of 3 chocolate sponges, 2 with chocolate buttercream and 1 with Baileys buttercream.
I crushed (a lot!) of digestive biscuits in a food processor to make the sand. This was added to the buttercream to
get the sandy effect on the cake, and then some loose sand was scattered all over to finish it off nicely!
For the more finer, shiner sand (which I added around the cake board and the top of the cake) I bought a mixture of sugars
from the shops, dark sugars and light sugars and mixed with a handful of poppy seeds and a few pearls to create the beachy colours!
The shells were made out of fondant.
Oh and to add a final touch I engraved a heart shape with J & L in the middle of it .
I hope you like it, and thank fully, the cake didn’t taste like you were eating sandy sandwiches!!
