Purple Jewelry Box Birthday Cake

Sculpted jewelry box with gumpaste jewelry for 80th birthday. Bottom of box is constructed of 3 layers of Italian cream cake and the lid is one layer with foamed cardboard underneath. I really like the texture of the box, it almost looks like suede or velvet. The request was that there be a strand of pearls coming out of the box. Since the cake was traveling for 6 hours I had to make the necklace out of a pearl border instead of individual pearls. I also decided to add more pearl jewelry in addition to a gold initial.
