To make sand for the beach, mix equal parts brown sugar and white sanding sugar. Ice cake on drum with buttercream icing. Allow icing to crust and carefully brush top of cake with piping gel. Sprinkle sand over piping gel and gently tap to secure to cake. Using the handle of a paint brush, draw a heart and initials into the sand. Place beach chairs into sand.
To mold shells: Melt candy coatings. If the shell is a solid color, fill cavities then tap mold lightly to rid of air bubbles. Place in freezer til set; remove when coating is cold and mold is cloudy. If the shell has a streak effect, brush a thin layer of candy coating in the mold with a small paintbrush. Allow the coating to set at room temperature. Fill molds with contrasting color of coating and tap mold lightly to rid of air bubbles. Place mold in freezer til coating is cold and mold is cloudy. Brush pearl dust on molded pieces once candy has come to room temperature. Attach to cake with piping gel.
