Gothic Gift Box Cake

Another gift box cake but completely different this time.

The order was for a Gothic style version for a young ladies 18th birthday using her favourite colours which were black, purple, orange & pink (but her mum had requested not too much black, lol).

I wasn't to sure about how the design would all fit together at first but I really love the way it turned out.

The cake was 3 layers of 'Blondie' cake (vanilla butter sponge) with Italian meringue buttercream sandwiched in between which I tinted pink for one layer & orange for the other to tie into the overall design of the cake, & it was all then covered in yummy marshmallow fondant.  It was quite a large cake, 12" square (approx 72 dessert size serves).

This time I made two handmade sugar roses for on top of the box instead of a more traditional bow, which I think fitted theme much better & I thought it would also be good to have some stay rose petals on top too.

I was also going to put a spiders web design on the back left corner of the lid but I decided it would be too much & would start to look more like a Halloween cake & so I left it off.

A closer look at the full roses & rose petals.

Even though they took ages to do I just love these cute little girly skulls with their heart shaped eyes & nose, long eyelashes & little pink bow.

Apparently the birthday girl loved her cake "Hi there, well the cake was a hit she was so excited n fell in love with it straight away . thanks again it was a big hit n very yummy ....i have been letting every1 we know what u do n  they love u work so u may get more jobs . thanks again, all the best."  Janis
