Of Sand and Shells

Well, first off – Happy New Year!  2014 was certainly a milestone year for Sweet IRB and we are so looking forward to our first full calendar year with both wholesale and retail operations!

For Sweet IRB, 2015 started the same as 2014 ended — with Beach Weddings!!

I have to say, the beach themed cakes are some of our favorite ones to do!  From cupcake towers full of puffy sand frosting covered with white chocolate shells to tiered rough coated butter cream cakes, I just love the style.  Just something about the sand and shells.

New Year’s Eve, the 3-tiered cake featured our hand made sugar beach chairs.  Shown here in white, but we can make them in any color.  Stay tuned for the pink and blue ones that we are working on for a display cake in the shop.


In addition, to the sugar chairs we made picket fences, chocolate shells, grass and sand.

The set up of this cake included “sand” surrounding with Initials — this seems to be a popular trend and we love it.


For New’s Years Day, the cake was an elevated single layer beach theme with a ‘heart” in the sand == We surrounded the cake with 2 flavors of cupcakes topped with shells, sand and initials.

So if you are someone you know is planning a beach wedding in our area or even a beach themed party, we are booking now for the remaining of winter, spring and fall.

Well, with all this talk of the beach — I think I might just need to go take a walk and look for some “real” shells!
