Coolest Present Birthday Cake

I made this Present Birthday Cake for my niece’s 8th birthday. It was the first cake I made with fondant. She and all her friends loved it!!

I used Wilton fondant, 1 small box. I baked the cake in a 8in round pan, 1 layer of chocolate and 1 layer of yellow. I put strawberry filling and butter cream in between the layers. I crumb coated it. I dyed about half the fondant green (her favorite color) with food coloring.

I covered the cake with the fondant. I dyed about a quarter of the left over fondant pink (her birthstone color). I cut strips of the white fondant out for the ribbon and to make some of the loops in the bow. I used the left over green fondant to make bow loops. After the bow loops were done setting, I attached the white ribbon strips and the loops using a damp brush. I made little balls with the pink fondant and slightly flattened them and attached them to ribbon strips with a damp brush.

I attached pink ribbon strips to the bottom of the cake. I took a toothpick and carved the scroll things onto the cake. It was fun and simple to make!
