I saw a present cake similar to this one and I made it for a book club I ran for young children. I also made it for my daughter's 1st birthday. It is actually not that hard to make.

Prior to making the cake, a day or two before, you will need to make the bow. Cut 5 each of: 6", 5", 4", 3", 2" strips, cutting an outward point or "V". Fold the cut strips, rounding the inside and lightly pinching the ends together. Lay them on their sides and let them dry or get hard. The ribbon that "wraps" the present can be layed on without drying.

After frosting the cake, lay the ribbon on. Next, mix some food coloring and white frosting to match the bow and to attach it or use already colored frosting. (In my case, I made it red). Lay the larger pieces on first, getting smaller as you build up the bow, sticking them into dots of the tinted frosting.

Then, I decorated with large Smarties, mini- M & M's and other assorted candies. This cake is a simple, but fun way to celebrate lots of different occasions.

I have made a present box cake before but this is my latest edition. I made a regular vanilla cake with vanilla buttercream and covered it in a Tiffany blue fondant. I then made a white bow and put it aside to harden and take shape.

I then started rolling out fondant pearls in white and blue to make the border around the base of the cake. When the bow was hard the next day, I used a little bit of water to the back and attached it to the fondant covered cake. Then attached the pearls and there you have it!

This Present Birthday Cake was my second attempt at making a cake with fondant. My husband and my mother-in-law have birthdays close together, so I decided to make a square present for the both of them.

The cake was a homemade peanut butter cake with chocolate buttercream frosting and covered with homemade fondant. The bow was made out of fondant. I made the loops ahead of time so they could dry and harden. Once they hardened, I attached the loops with melted white chocolate.

This Present Birthday Cake is a Gluten Free cake which I made for my Mother in Laws 50th birthday. It is a Gluten Free Victoria sponge, covered in white fondant. I made the bow out of fondant (I am not very happy with it, but it is my first attempt at one and I know where I went wrong for next time). I then cut different size circles out and put 50's on the larger ones.

What did you learn about the bow for next time? I've never done a bow and am going to give it a try.

I made this Present Birthday Cake for my daughter's 13th birthday. I used four layers of chocolate sponge cake and the cream was chocolate mousse. Very delicious!!

The frosting was whipped cream coloured as light orange. The ribbons and the roses was made with homemade sugarpaste as well as the little flowers on the side. My daughter and her friends loved it!

I made this present birthday cake for my niece's birthday. It is a four layer devils food cake made with an 8in square pan.

It is covered in white buttercream and fondant cutouts, the bow is made from white fondant that was made the day before so it was able to harden.
