Coolest Boxtrolls Cake

After asking my son for weeks what he wanted for his birthday cake, he finally gave me an answer two days before his party! Not just an answer, but a design! A design of a box troll cake.

So, after a frantic trip to the fab cake supplies shop 25 minutes away to get edible ‘Fragile, This Way Up’ and his facing box labels printed, I came home and modelled Rice Krispie treats into a head and limbs.

Using movie photos I found online, I colored fondant to cover the appendages, and make features, etc. Cake pop sticks provided a means to attach them to the cake the next day after they’d had some time to set up.

I baked two quarter sheet cakes, one chocolate and one vanilla. After trimming them to size, I filled the bottom two layers with vanilla pudding, and placed a board on top of the supports (cake pop sticks wrapped in foil ). I filled the top two layers with pudding and covered everything in caramel frosting and piping details. I also added my edible labels.

I think it turned out ok!
