My youngest nephew just turned one, and this is the cake I chose to make for him.
I've been seeing these Toy Box cakes all over and thought it would make a really fun 1st birthday cake.
Cake is approximately 8"x11" and is frosted in buttercream and then covered in fondant. Some toys are made from fondant & gumpaste and others are styrofoam covered with gumpaste to help cut down on the weight.
Take just a minute and let Congress know that you do not support PIPA & SOPA. You can learn more about them both by going to the address below and it will only take a few seconds to fill in your information to let Congress know this is not ok! If these bills pass Congress, it could change the internet as we know it!
Birthday cake I made for a friend from work for her daughter's second birthday.
It's an 8" cake frosted in buttercream with fondant and gumpaste details. I used several different impression mats on the detail pieces to create lots and lots of texture. Almost like they were made from fabric.
I've had this design saved for a while now. It's based on two different cakes. One by Mavin kurve (Kassie) on Flickr and one by patisseriejaja on Cake Central. I just knew this design would be perfect for this cake!
