Is the toy box going to be the whole cake? Or is it going to be the decoration on a cake?

Do a search for toy box cakes in the galleries. There are lots to look at for ideas. I made a toy box cake for a competition a few years ago. Do you want to make your cake the toy box or do you want to make a toy box to decorate the top of your cake?

Wilton has a toy box cake with instructions, on their site under "baby". I did my toy box cake using those instructions; and it came out great! HTH> Good luck!

Why do you need legs? Most toy boxes sit on the ground. Again check out the Wilton website for the toy box cake and it will show you everything you need to know.

I put legs on mine. I used wooden balls under the cake board and covered them with fondant. A pic. is in my gallery. Doing it that way worked out well.

To put legs on my jewelery box, I cut a piece of foam core about one and a half inches smaller than my cake board and covered it with foil. I made the legs out of fondant a couple of days ahead of time so they would dry a bit and used the foil wrapped fondant as a height guide. When I was ready to assemble I set the box on its board on the foil wrapped foam core and placed the legs under the box at the corners. It looks as if its supported by the fondant legs, but it is actually supported by the foam core base that no one can see unless they look under the cake.
