Gift Box Cake

Gift box cake

This gift box cake was made for the annual danish cake competition held by a danish cake craft store. It is quite small and cosy, but I meet with a lot of my danish cake friends for a nice “cake chat”.

I was so lucky to win 1st prize with my cake and it is now my turn to have the trophy at home.

I have used pink food color for the top tier and a mix of blue and green food color for the second tier. The Petunia cutter and petal veiner and my sugarcraft gun have also been used on the cake.

You can also take a look at my tutorial on how to make a sugar bow.

Happy Caking!

    Kara: There have been a lot of talking about the use of sugarcraft guns read here:

    Now I love it very very much and think it is a brilliant tool. Eventhough it can contain loads of fondant paste I find it good to work with as long as you knead in a few drops of water & some white fat to make it more pliable to push through.

    You can un-screw and fill in more paste if you want a very long rope. Or try take a look at this tool: It will always cut straight and even ribbons in the lenght you roll out your paste.

    Hi Louise!

    Wonderful cake! I really love your site and I visit often. I do have a question that I hope you can help with – I am thinking about purchasing the sugarcraft gun, and I was wondering how well you are able to get long lengths of ribbons/rope/etc. In other words, do you feel that to apply a fondant rope or ribbon around a 10″ cake, I would be better off just cutting one manually or using the sugarcraft gun? I know the gun is good for short lengths of ribbon, but what is your opinion of the longer length output?

    Thanks so much!!
