Tiffany Themed Birthday Cake

Project Description

What are you most proud of? I really like the little ring box :) it's too cute! I am also proud that the shopping bag didn't fall apart! lol What advice would you give someone starting this project? When making the panels for the shopping bag, make sure that they are the correct size. I cut mine a little too small which made the sides difficult to stay together.

Q&A with Bakir

AnnGeeV asked:
Great job!!! It relly looks good enough to eat. I really would like to try this. Where is the pattern info?
Bakir answered:
Hi, thank you :) i there is no specific pattern information. For the box: Tint the fondant with teal wilton icing gel. I made two (three would have been better) 8 in square cakes and covered them with the fondant. Top: I cut four cake boards to 8 x 8 in, glued them together, (set something heavy on top of the cut cake boards until they dry) apply buttercream and cover with the fondant. Bag: made two 6in cakes, i cut the fondant into 4 panels ( i can not remember the dimensions) I made the panels taller than than the cake about 3in. let the panels dry and then use royal icing to glue the box together around the cake. ring box: you can use a muffin tin and make a muffin size cake. trim to make it look even and round. cover with fondant then make a lid by cutting a round piece of fondant to cover the top. Tag: used links from the jewelry making section from the craft store (any links will do. the were relatively inexpensive) I used the small heart cut out for the charm and dusted it with wilton luster dust (also bought it at the craft store). the tag was made out of gum paste. bracelet: i made the links using fondant/gumpaste mix (equal amounts of fondant and gum paste kneaded together). the tissue paper was made out of gum paste. roll the gum paste thin, then cut into various sizes and ruffle the pieces then let them dry. arrange them how you want on the top of the box and inside the bag. once you have your placement, attach with royal icing. pearls: i made white balls and dusted with pearl dust. I ruffled white fondant around the boxes and then dusted it with white pearl dust. I hope this helps, let me know if you have any questions :)
