Beach Pail Cake

Beach Pail Cake

Simply Wow! It took me a few minutes to realize this was a cake – the details are incredible. The sand, the shells, the artwork on the pail are all sculpted to fine detail. 

I can imagine a child's eyes when getting this cake for their birthday or an adult's face bringing them back to their childhood memories.

I would love to see someone tackle an entire table of beach themed desserts for a party – now that would be something to marvel! Anyone seen one, please do share with me if you have.

Beautiful work by artist and baker Cecile Gady!

ONLY AT DEAN & DELUCA. We simply can't imagine a more fitting end to a beach party or clambake. This delicious chocolate cake is layered with dark chocolate mousse and light vanilla cream, and frosted with vanilla buttercream. The pail and handle are tinted white chocolate, as are the "sand" and seashells on top. As delicious as it is imaginative, this one's guaranteed to be a crowd pleaser. 

4.8 lbs. total, 6" x 5.5", twelve to fourteen servings USA


Cecile Gady of Cakework combined a background in sculpture with a natural gift for baking. As a result, her San Francisco bakery creates wedding and specialty cakes that are as delicious as they are gorgeous. Cakework cakes are wrapped in a veneer of tinted white chocolate, dark chocolate, or poured ganache glaze to create one-of-a-kind designs. As a delectable finish, each cake is decorated with delicate, hand-sculpted chocolate flowers, hand-blown sugar bubbles, and more.
