I have seen some very great jewelry boxes, or cigar boxes on CC. I need a step by step tutorial if anyone has it, for building a cigar box (any box) cake. I know I can use styrofoam as the lid and cover it in fondant, but, its how to attach and make it stay that I need help with. Any ideas, or links? I appreciate your help!
When i made mine (in my pics), i just covered my cake in mmf, then attached a styro wedge with a little bc (i covered mine with mmf and hot glued to a cake board cut to size, so no styro would touch my cake). then i covered my styro lid with mmf, and again put on cake board, and glued that to wedge with bc. hope this helps you.
jjaj, I went to your pics, but do not see a box cake. Am I missing something? Thanks for teh idea. I will try to visualize and apply to my cake.
it's the stacked gift box cake...woops...were you thinking of a totally different kind of box? sorry =(
I have made several box cakes using 2 different methods... First way....covering a styrofoam wedge and securing to cake with BC. Second way.... cutting tea straws the height I need then using a small dab of BC to secure end of straw to box top. For both methods, to give me peace of mind, I run a small border of BC to the inside of the box lid (so not to show on outside of cake) for adding 'glue!' Here's a pic of my most recent box cake. HTH!
