My husband is addicted to chapstick, so I thought this chapstick cake would fit him perfectly. Basically I just used a bread pan for the body, baked two cakes and fit them together. I then carved the top of the tube with a knife to make the indentations.
The red is dyed frosting and all of the white is molded fondant. A pearing knife works great to cut out shapes and lettering. The black frosting came from a squeeze tube of ready made color. The actual chapstick that sticks out of the tube is covered in a sparkle red writing gel pen. The shine of it made it look more realistic.
The lid is only fondant with a cut tube from a paper towel as a base. It was a lot of fun to make this cake and probably the most original one I have done. I hope everyone likes it!!
