My dad’s 50 birthday was this week and we had a surprise party. He loves carrot cake, but no one else did, so being fall and all I made a pumpkin spice cake and creamcheese frosting. The cake was baked in cookie sheets so they were thin. Four layers of cake and frosting and then covered with red fondant.

I made the tools out of chocolate with chocolate tool molds. The tape measure is made from cereal treats and then covered in fondant. The decorations on the cake were made from fondant. The best is the To Do List. It is fondant and I used edible food coloring pens to make it look like paper.

My husband says its my best cake yet. This Toolbox Birthday Cake definitely looked great, tasted great and most importantly everyone including dad loved it.
