Baby shower Toybox cake
A young student of mine (no, I'm not a cake decorating instructor! LOL) asked me to help her with a baby shower need. I provided the cake. It was fun! I wish I had had more time to work on the building blocks, but otherwise, I enjoyed the outcome. The cake was two 12x18 cakes, with buttercream under fondant. The bear, basketball, and football were all rice cereal treats covered in fondant; everything else was fondant or sugarpaste. I created the wood texture by rolling grooves in the toybox, and painting the toybox with a mix of vanilla and brown gel color "stain."
