Can any one tell me how to make this cake of the attached picture? A customer e-mailed the picture to me wanting a cake like this and I'm not sure how to go about making the lids. I looked for a tutorial but had no success.

Thanks in advance- Kelly

If you have the time I would order the Sharon Zambito Boxes and Bows DVD. It will teach you how to do all the boxes. hth

I've made lids out of styrofoam covered with fondant.

Here's a link to someone who not only does it that way, but several other ways as well:


(she explains her process in the comments)

HTH!

Thank You! I will be ordering the video but it will not get here in time for this cake. So pretty much the lids are styrofoam from what I can gather?
