Coolest Jewelry Box Birthday Cake
I made this cake for my granddaughter’s 10th birthday party. The cake is 2 chocolate 9×13″ cakes, leveled and stacked with strawberry jam in the middle (her favorite), basic royal icing colored pink to match the real jewelry box gift we gave her.
I cut off a piece at the front to make the drawer. Strawberry wafer cookies to form the sections and build up the sides on the top, but they started to split so I used sour fruit strips to cover that up. The lid is a piece of cardboard, covered with foil and iced. I used a dollar-store mirror in the middle.
To insert the lid, I stuck long skewers in to the cardboard and then stuck it in the cake at the very last minute. I filled the cake with ePop rings and candy necklaces, plus some jewelry tinkets from the Dollar store. Couldn’t find a ballerina for the middle but the Disney princess was a suitable alternate!!
Her stand is melted pink chocolate wafers. The kids couldn’t wait for her to blow out the candles so they could devour the candies!!
