gift box

Project Description

Share a little about the materials, processes, and techniques used to create this cake cake,fondant,frosting, peanut butter frosting,gel colors What are you most proud of? After three tries of making this gift box the pieces finally came togehter nicely. Rolling the fondant pieces for the cake box was not working for me at all: Finally, I got a pasta attachment for my mixer. It was like magic. In addition, I used the bottom of my cake pan to cut the circle for the cover. When making the border around the top I used the pasta roller for even thickness and a yard stick to cut the precise length.. I also used a clay extruder for the first time. Wicked cool!!!!!! Now I have to figure out a way to transfer a paintable design onto the box prior to painting a design. I tried the Wilton stamps. That experience did not go so well.. Love the class:) Now onto the next Advanced Fondant technique cake project:) What advice would you give someone starting this project? Keep trying:) Eventually everything will come together:)
