Some couples choose to have a gorgeous sandcastle cake strictly to compliment and enrich their Sandcastle wedding theme.

In this case, the cake is simply used as a stunning decoration.

They would then have another much plainer cake that will be served to the guests.

Some sandcastle cakes are extremely detailed and they’re literally works of art! Other “simpler” ones are just as gorgeous and perhaps surprisingly, not that difficult to make.

If you’re thinking of making your own sandcastle cake, you don’t need to make everything from scratch if you don’t want to.

For example, you can buy candy seashells, edible beach chairs and an assortment of other beach themed accessories to decorate your cake with.
