I promise that I’m working diligently to prepare for an upcoming mermaid birthday party; I just don’t have a whole lot of finished product to show here yet!
I do have these beautiful molded candy seashells, though. Aren’t they lovely? I used plastic molding trays purchased from Sugarcraft and super white candy melts. Once the candies were molded and popped out of the trays, I dry-brushed them with a few shades of dusting powder. Specifically, I used Luster Dust in Salmon and Georgia Peach and Pearl Dust in Super Pearl. Dusting powders were also purchased from Sugarcraft.
I can’t wait to see how the finished product turns out when I use these for the birthday party, but I can’t tell you just yet what my plans are – you know, in case it doesn’t all pan out. They sure are pretty, though. I’m such a sucker for some shimmer.

I love these. I wonder if the same trick would work with making little soaps?

What shell molds did you specifically use? I really want to purchase some because I’m doing a beach themed birthday party and i need the shells for favors as well as for the cake, cake-pop, and cupcake decorations. If its not inconvenient for you, would you please let me know? thank you!
Same comment as Brisa, what specific Sugarcraft molds were used? Also, please recommend a good quality candy melt brand, if possible.

Hi, I am going to be making these this week for an event. I looked up the colors of dusting powder you used on the sugar craft website and from what I can tell those colors don’t say edible or FDA approved. Did you plan on eating them? I want the use the same fest colors but want to be able to eat them??? Suggestions?
I would recommend that you contact Sugar Craft directly to ask about the dusting powders. They should be able to provide you with accurate information – thanks!! And have fun!

These seashells are beautiful, I would like to make these for a wedding. Where can I purchase the luster dust that you used?
I purchased it from sugarcraft.com, Elana! Hope that helps!
What candy mold did you use?? I love the seashells you have, but I couldn’t find anything like them.
I know where you bought them, but not the specific mold you used.
