Here's a fun birthday cake idea - a floral gift box cake. It's great because the celebrant can have her present and eat it too.

It was made for a precious little girl who was celebrating her birthday. It is made to look like a present then finished off with a nice bow and flowers.


For this project I used an 8'' square cake and frosted it with uncolored buttercream. Make a lid with pink buttercream by following the instructions for easy gift box cake tutorial . When this is done, let the cake chill in the refrigerator.

Make 3 pieces each pink and orange fondant ribbon roses . Using the green fondant, make a few fondant leaves. Set aside.

To make the ribbon trim, roll the white fondant thin and cut 2'' wide bands. The length will depend on the height and width of the cake. Place the white fondant as shown in picture. Roll the brown thin and cut to 1/2'' strips. Place the brown strips on the edges of the white fondant bands.

Make a bow using the white fondant. Add the thin brown strips at the edges. Place bow on the intersection of the bands on the cake. Place the fondant roses and leaves on top of the bow. Make a few tendrils using the green fondant and place with the roses and leaves. Roll out the brown fondant and cut circles from it using a large round pastry tip. Place the circles randomly on the bottom part of the cake.
