Rated 5 out of 5 by bevn77 from I used this technique on my daughter's wedding cake. Used a light turquoise buttercream on white fondant. Filled the 'bowl' separator with fondant/gum paste shells covered with pearl dust, and added just a few at white buttercream shell border. Very simple, but elegant. BTW, I took the baked layers, tinted buttercream and fondant with me.. and decorated the cake on a cruise ship in our stateroom. Due to location/circumstances, was only a 2 layer cake (14 and 8 inch layers) My daughter was thoroughly surprised and had no idea that I planned this for their St. Thomas wedding cruise.

Rated 5 out of 5 by AmandaStephens77 from Very easy technique and I love the look. I prefer to use a shimmer powder rather than a plain color, but that's just a personal preference depending on the look you're going for.
