This gumball machine cake was made for my son’s 6th birthday. I love making creative cakes and so this one was something I had wanted to try for sometime. I purchased the glass bowl from Michael’s craft store for about $5 and then built the base from various sized circle cakes, trimming and carving, then frosting and smoothing before applying homemade fondant.
The hardest part was surprisingly the top part – getting it small enough to look realistic. Everyone seemed to really love it! It is a fun and fabulous cake for any age birthday celebration!
