chocolate gift box cake topper

The cake I am sharing with all of you today is decorated with a cute chocolate gift box topper. It’s completely edible, really easy to make and great for many different occasions.

You can fill it with whatever seasonal candies you like.

You can also hide a surprise inside it and seal it completely and use it as a topper for for birthday cakes. It would be fun for the birthday boy or girl to open 🙂

To make this cake topper, you will need the following supplies: 

Gift box chocolate mold
Melted milk chocolate
Red, green and yellow m&m candies
Corn syrup
Edible gold spray
Wax paper

These are the instructions:

Step 1:
Wash your chocolate mold and let it dry.
If there is any dust in the mold, it will stick to the chocolate and look yucky!

Step 2:
Melt chocolate in the microwave.
Spoon it into the mold cavities.

Step 3:
Tap the side of the mold so that the chocolate spreads properly into the corners of the cavity.
Chill in the freezer for 10 minutes or until the chocolate hardens.

Step 4:
Gently turn the mold onto your counter, lined with wax paper.
Tap the top of the mold and the chocolate piece will come out.

Step 5:
Spray the chocolate gift box with gold edible spray.
Let the paint dry at room temperature… it takes about 15 minutes.

Don’t try moving the chocolate pieces when the gold paint is wet or else you will have smudges everywhere.

Step 6:
When the paint is dry, stick red and yellow m&m candies on top of the gift box (in the shape of a flower) using corn syrup.

At the last minute, I thought the gift box looked better without the red candies. So, I removed those and only left the yellow candy in the center.

Step 7:
Place the chocolate gift box on top of your frosted cake and fill it with red and green candies or whatever else you like.
