hello fellow cakers,
I need help to make a toy box. I mostly need help with the lid since I plan on making it half open with toys peeping out. Thanks in advance.

Not at all, I don't mind covering a piece of board with fondant if need be, but wanting to know if anyone else has any ideas they could share.
Thanks

When I did the covers for these boxes I used a sugar cookie covered with a thin layer of cake then covered the whole in fondant. I cut the sugar cookie to the shape of the cake, but made it a little thicker than usual. I chilled it really well before baking and it hardly spread at all. I trimmed it while it was still warm. My cake layers were cut from a sheet of cake baked in a jelly roll pan so the layer that went on over the cookie was about 1/2 inch thick. I put buttercream between the cake and the cookie and covered it with fondant as usual.

This one is a piece of foam core cut to size and covered in fondant. If I was to do it again I would go to the cookie simply because I prefer as much of my work to be edible as possible.
