This was a gift box cake I made for my friend's 25th birthday. The cake was red velvet with a cream cheese frosting, which I colored with brown icing color to look like chocolate. The bow, ribbons, polka dots, and name tag are all made out of fondant, which I also colored with icing color.
The cake turned out really well and no one wanted to eat it because it was so cute. They did eat it however, and raved about the taste.
This homemade Gift birthday cake was made with three round cake pans and then stacked and layered with butterceam frosting.
The entire cake was covered in marshmallow fondant. Strings of colorful fondant with cutout shapes were adhered with buttercream frosting. 1" strips of colored fondant were placed between layers to hide any 'seams'.
The flower on top consisted of five daisy cutouts, each in a different color, stacked on top of each other, bent upwards and downwards.
