She Sells Seashells

I'm working on some cake decorations. I made the shells below using gum paste and lollipop molds (that's right combining two of my classes this year).

I think they turned out pretty good, even without any luster dust.

But then I lightly dusted the edges in bronze and the entire shell in super pearl luster dust - now they look great.

Even though I used molds each shell and starfish is a little different and I love that - the imperfections give them a more natural feel.
I'm working on plumeria flowers to go with the shells - together they should be really cute. I also have a request for a giraffe cake - yikes! I found some horse cupcakes that I think I can turn in to giraffe cupcakes....I better get practicing.
