This Box Of Crayons Birthday Cake is for my cousin's youngest child's 3rd birthday, all she does is color!
It's a half sheet cake with a 'chunk' cut of of one end and a sheet of grayish fondant placed in the hole to make it look like the back of the box. Iced with yellow buttercream. The name and number are cut out from very thinly rolled out fondant. The green color is a dark forest green with a bit of black in it to get it more 'crayola' like.
The crayons are ice cream cone cupcakes. I coated them in colored white chocolate. They have fondant 'paper' wrappers in corresponding colors with the 'crayola' wave painted on with black gel color watered with a bit of vodka.
This one was so much fun to do!

I couldn't find a cake mold for a crayon box, so I started with all the great crayon cakes on this site. For this Crayon Cake Design I baked one chocolate cake and one yellow cake, trimmed one edge off of both and stuck them together, that way people could choose either chocolate or vanilla cake.
I shaved off about 1/2 inch for the top quarter of the cake, so that I could place the crayons. I used have of ice cream cones for crayons. I used a star tip for the entire cake. I had to free hand the name 'Emma' and '2'. That was the hardest part.
The cones (or crayons) were the only part of the cake that was not star tipped. I just spread a generous amount of frosting on the cones.
I got this idea from this website. My niece Katia turned 6 years old and she loves to color everything, so when I saw this idea, I knew I would have to try to duplicate it. My nephews Anthony and Arthur helped me with this homemade Crayola colors box cake.
I baked two rectangular cakes and placed one on top of the other, but cut the top one to give the idea that the box was open and to make place for the colors. The crayola colors are ice cream cones and we put whipped cream in different colors. It was fun but a lot of work. She enjoyed it.
My roommate is always so creative so I decided to make her a Crayola Crayon Cake! It started off as a regular white 13x9 cake from a box. I carved a rectangle out of the top like the lid was off the crayon box. The crayons were each a Twinkie with one end cut into a point. I wrote her name using green colored gel and mixed up the frosting colors using a couple drops of food coloring.
I made this Crayon Box Birthday Cake for my nephew's 6th birthday. It is only a 9x13 cake pan with a bit of the top shaved half way down to create a spot for the crayons. The crayons are ice cream cones cut in half and iced different colors with buttercream icing.
