I want to make a gift box with the lid slightly opened and tissue poking out. My question is, if I make the top out of cake, how do I get it to stay at an angle with out it sliding off? Thank you!
i made a treasure chest cake, with the lid being cake, and I put cake board on bottom of the lid, then put sharpened wooden dowels in the chest and poked them through the cardboard on the lid a little bit, I didnt break all the way through just enough to hold it up.
The dowels are at the back? Into the lowest part of the lid? Thanks!
no I put them in the middle on tword the outside of the bottom.
I see. I guess because I couldn't see them, I thought that they must be in the back, but I guess there is enough treasure to cover them. And I guess I would have enough tissue to cover them. Thanks so much for your help!
yea I put ring pops around the dowels then set coins agains the dowel to cover them, hope yours comes out good!
Thanks so much for your help nicoles0419! It turned out great and even survived the half hour drive!
