Cake In A Box

Image

When I was asked by a good friend to make a christening cake and that I get to pick the design, a gift box/present cake instantly came to mind. It has been long on my wish list of cakes to do and it is quite fitting for the occasion since the parents definitely consider their little boy the most precious gift they’ve ever received.

So I made a 2-tier square cake using 8-inch and 10-inch pans. Both tiers are chocolate with mocha filling, with a layer of buttercream icing underneath the fondant. The lid/top is made from foam core board covered with fondant, and the bow is made of 50/50 fondant/gumpaste mix. I also made baby booties and a bear to accessorize the cake.
