I love the toybox, treasure chest and baby crib cakes, but how are you supposed to cut and serve them without making a huge mess??

This is my first post. Thanks so much for all the great information and ideas on this site!!!! icon_biggrin.gif

You can remove the fondant or gumpaste and cut(there is a layer of buttercream and or ganache under), or if it is fondant, you just cut and serve and let the person eating the slice decide if they want the fondant or not. You could also use chocolate or modeling chocolate for the sides as well. Personal preference.

Clean knife(and sharp not serrated) make a big difference in cutting any cake neatly.

Welcome and hope to see you around more!

Thanks for responding. The ones I've seen are definitely hardened gumpaste. I guess if the cake was covered in buttercream and fondant, then the gumpaste structure would just be surrounding that. It's not actually 'glued' to the cake. I could see how that would could work without making the cake slices look too messy. Thanks again!
