This Vintage Cake Box cake design is featured in the June 2017 issue of “Cake Decoration & Sugarcraft” Magazine. Surprisingly easy to create, it’d make an ideal gift for a birthday, anniversary, Mother’s day or even just a posh tea !
It’s also a fairly easy cake to simplify. If you don’t want to fill your box with cakes, you could fill it with chocolates or decorated cookies instead. If you’re looking at the food colour painting around the lid and the sides of the box in horror then either stick sugarpaste shapes onto your box or use a flower or heart cutter to gently press a pattern of imprints into the sugarpaste instead.
