This Post Box Cake was for a lady who worked for the post office. I thought the red box would look striking. I stacked up 3 small fruity cakes on top of each other and covered with marzipan. I had a slightly larger cake for the top and trimmed it when frozen to make the curved shape. I covered with marzipan and then covered both parts with red sugarpaste.
I put the top on and then put black around the bottom and shaped it slightly to make a curve. I then added the extra detail of the box. For delivery date I put date of birth, made some small cards with the persons name on and made a small post bag out of sacking. I iced the board with grey and added various grey shapes for cobbles.
To finish it off I put some letters in the bag and some grass growing at the bottom of the box. I was really pleased with the result.
