~ Shell Cakes ~


I know they might be a bit crunchy. Hard on the tooth? But my 5 year old thought it was a good idea to make shell cakes. Of course if you ask an adult how to do this, they become baffled but a child can think of how it's done! Just trying to figure out how long to bake them for. Any ideas?

  3. I think shell cakes should be baked in the sun until they're warm! I like that kind of baking.

  10. I love the way children think...they are never afraid to be creative. And they don't even realize they are...
    Love the shell cakes...

  13. They look absolutely perfect to me. We are in the midst of yet another dust storm so nothing is looking very good over here at the moment. Hope this week is a quieter one for you. Best wishes, Tammy

  14. Once they're baked, maybe leave them out for the Easter Bunny?

  15. How cute! Maybe as decor on top of the cupcake?

  16. Resin would work a charm. No baking required. Or maybe gel candle wax? Or maybe see-through soap?

  19. What a lovely idea! A lot less messier than mud pies too! She is very clever, because the joy is actually in the making, rather than the eating.... x

  20. hehehe... too cute! Perhaps you could make a shell mirror or a shell frame instead of an edible item? ;) Although, a plaster cupcake with shell icing might be awfully adorable!

  23. Adorable. I remember making something like this long ago a summer camp...we put shells into a plaster of paris mixture/mold and ended up with cool paper weights.

  28. I suspect crunchy?? Totally sweet. Gorgeous to meet you today, i'm coming back tomorrow, my husband said "i can see it in your eyes, you've made a promise to yourself to shop again". What a great man!! He wanted to ask you about how your car is going (he grew up with an EH Holden & it still lives). So we can chat about Ellie tomorrow too, while i shop some more, ahhhh, life, loving Brisbane. Love Posie

  31. Shell cakes yum yum. Shells to be mixed with cup of wet sand, half a cup of mud and sprinkled with grass, and baked for the duration of a trip to the dunny, if I remember correctly.
