Life’s a beach…

I made this cake for one of the other Nana’s 50th birthday celebration.  This beach scene includes all the things you need for a relaxing day at the beach.

The cake is chocolate with a chocolate ganache filling, then covered with fondant.  The beach items are all fondant/gumpaste with raw sugar as the sand.

I just love the way the sun umbrella turned out, perfectly ruffled.

Here’s a closer look at some of the detail…
