I’m behind on editing my cake photos again so I’m down to slim pickings for posting…but I like this cake so I don’t feel like you’re getting gypped!
Ok, folks. Christmas is quickly approaching. If you’ve thought about bringing a festive cake to your family celebration, you better get baking soon!
But you don’t have to spend hours and hours on a cake for it to look gorgeous, elegant, and Christmas-y!
Make a cake that looks like a gift!
Here’s one I did for my friend Nikki’s office holiday party:
Here’s a close-up of the bow and the gift tag:
Here’s a similar concept, where the cake was covered in white fondant and topped with a big loopy gift bow. Here, you have to have a little more time because each of those loops has to completely dry before you can assemble the bow.
If you’ve ever been to the bakery, you’ve seen our show cake that looks like a bunch of gift packages. It’s a stunning cake – very elegant and sophisticated! It would be perfect for so many occasions – a holiday party, wedding, anniversary party, etc. It’s huge and really makes a statement.
Well, a couple of weeks ago, a bride specifically requested that we replicate that show cake for her wedding.
This cake is great if you need an idea for how to decorate a gift box cake. Each box was decorated in a different manner and 5 different bow styles!
This was an 8-inch round cake sitting on top of a 10-inch square cake…which was sitting on a 12-inch square cake…which was sitting on a large rectangular cake…phew! Also notice bow #1 with wide bow loops.
