How do I decorate my wedding cake with chocolate seashells?
One of the most frequent questions we are asked is
"How many seashells do I need to decorate my wedding cake?".
There really isn't a right or wrong answer for that question. It all depends on what style of cake you envision.
Is the cake going to simplistic or over the top?
Are the seashells going to be cascading down from each layer?
Are you going to pile the seashells in strategic places or are the chocolate seashells going to be scattered sporadically around the cake?
Do you need chocolate seashells to accent the base of your cake or cake table?
Do you want each guest to have a chocolate seashell on their piece of wedding cake?
If you are a do-it-yourself cake decorator, these are some of the questions you need to answer. If you are working with a professional cake decorator, they will be able to help you create your perfect wedding cake.
A seashell wedding cake is naturally the perfect way to carry out your beach or ocean theme. I have seen hundreds of beach theme cakes and they are all different because each bride is different. Unleash your creativity and let the sun, surf and sand be your inspiration!

Olde Naples Chocolate has a large selection of chocolate seashells in all shapes, sizes and colors.
Some brides find it overwhelming trying to pick the perfect shells for their cake. We have made it a little easier with our chocolate sea shell cake decorating kit. This kit is the most popular sea shell collection we sell. The wedding cake decorating kit has 48 seashells ranging from 1 inch up to 3 inches. This collection works great on most 2 and 3 tier wedding cakes.
Sometime less is more, and for that occasion, we have our a 16 piece chocolate seashell collection. This collection is perfect for a smaller cake. Each seashell in this collection is between 1.25" and 1.75". These also work well on cupcakes.
A great addition to this collection is our trio collection. The chocolate seashell trio package has sand dollars, starfish and a basic seashell. By adding this collection to our 16 piece collection you get a great variety of seashells and sea creatures.
Cupcake Decorating and more
We have several small and even tiny chocolate seashell collections. These work great on cupcakes. These collection have at least 18 small chocolate seashells per collection. These are also a great way to add a chocolate seashell to every piece of cake you serve.
Once you have picked out your chocolate seashells for your wedding cake (easy right?) Now it's time to choose your color!
All of our seashells come in milk chocolate, dark chocolate and white chocolate. We use real white chocolate and not a confectionery coating, so our white chocolate seashells are an off white/cream color.
Our white chocolate seashells can be dusted with color to accent the cake and go with your color theme. We can't match exact colors and we can not guarantee we will get the exact color you want, but we will do our best to try. From a light dusting of color to a more vibrant color we have many options to choose from. If you don't see what you are looking for, just give us a call. You can also add some instructions on the color you are trying to achieve when you purchase your seashells, under special request/additional information.
