Has anyone ever made a cake in the shape of a cake/bakery box? Or how about a cake shaped like a box that you fit roses into?

If anyone has any suggestions or links, please let me know. Thanks!

I've seen a cake that looked like a box of roses but it was just a long white rectangle cake with long stem roses on top and placed in a cake box to fit so it looked like a box of roses. I've never seen a cake that looked like a bakery box but I have seen a sweater cake that was in a box made of color flow.

That sweater cake is really cute! I was thinking the t-shirt cake could be used this way too, lots of variations to use with that one! I ordered a couple of the boxes and boards (which are a little flimsy and will need more than one layer for safety, should have ordered 4 rather than just 2) for the box of roses, thought it would be good for Mother's Day.

Can't imagine how you'd make a cake box cake, would you have it open with a cake inside? That would be fun, but what would you use for the walls of the box...large cookies maybe, or graham crackers? Could be quite a challenge, but different! Janice

Thanks lisa for the info. Its funny that you mentioned the box of roses b/c that's what I was going for. I was hoping to make that cake but also make a cake that looks like the book that the cake w/ roses fit into.

Yes, that cardboard box does look a little chintzy, not quite as bad in person as it looks in the photo! The box the sweater is in looks good, but I can't tell what it is made of. If I were going to try to make a box like that, I'd probably try the square cookie route! The edible box would be a lot prettier for the cake with roses on it! Janice

The box the sweater is in is made of colorflow.

Just one more thing I haven't tried! It sure looks pretty! Janice

I was looking for a different cake entirely (spider-man holding up a building--I give up icon_sad.gif !) but I did come across this one. The only things non-edible are the rose stems and the tissue paper. It is so pretty!

Ooohhhh! Thanks lisa! I love that picture. I think I know what I'll do now. I don't want to give it away. I'll let it be a suprise. icon_biggrin.gif

That is pretty! Another idea just came to me. Make the box cake, bow, etc., edible, and put real or silk roses (with tissue paper, I guess) on top, that way you could eat the cake, keep the flowers...double gift! Janice

Good idea! That would be so much easier too. Triple bonus!

Great idea ladies! I can't wait to share my next project with all of you.
