Sandcastle Cake for School Fayre

YAY!!!.....my first cake since I had the Op on my wrist......seems like it's been forever!
Anyhow, I have made this for Will's "School Fayre", I had intended to make a small one but I got a little carried away,
it's not huge but bigger than I thought it would be!
The fondant driftwood was soooo inspired by "Betty's Sugar Dreams" cake, obviously nowhere near as good as hers and here is a link to her masterpiece for those very few who haven't seen it www.flickr.com/photos/bettyssugardreams/3594239893/
Bottom tier (9") : Vanilla sponge with Elderflower buttercream.
Middle (6") : Rich Chocolate sponge with dark chocolate buttercream.
Top tier (4"): Vanilla Maderia Sponge with chocolate buttercream.
All covered in a sand coloured fondant
and decorated with fondant shells, starfish, pebbles, pearls, flowers and driftwood with the schools name pressed in,
the sand is soft brown sugar. I hope they like it!
