    PRESENT CAKE: Hidden Gift in a Cake!

    Ingredients and Materials:
    • 4x 8" square Red Velvet Cakes
    • Cream Cheese buttercream
    • Royal blue, sky blue and white fondant
    • Small gift that will fit in a jar

    Procedure:
    1.

    Attach one cake to cake board with a dab of buttercream.

    Cut a circle the size of the jar's diameter in the center of 3 of the cakes.

    Stack cakes and layer with buttercream.

    Place jar inside of the hole.

    Cover jar with half a slice of the removed circle of cake.

    Cover entire cake in cream cheese buttercream.
    2.

    Place 4th cake layer on a cardboard cake board and cover completely in cream cheese buttercream.


    3.

    Cover both the sides of the cakes in sky blue fondant.

    Also cover the top of the smaller cake with blue fondant.
    4.

    Roll out royal blue fondant and slice with a ribbon cutter using the wavy blades.

    Place fondant ribbon strips onto the sides of the bottom cake, securing with a small amount of water.

    Place fondant strips on to the sides and top of the lid of the cake.


    5.

    Roll out additional royal blue ribbon, cut into 5" strips.

    Fold strips so the ends meet and trim the ends to a point.

    Turn ribbon on it's side and allow to dry.
    6.

    Cut squares of fondant and pinch to form tissue paper like pieces.

    Place pieces along the edge of the cake, covering the seam.


    7.

    Insert dowels to support cake.

    Place lid on top and fill in any gaps with additional "tissue paper".
    8.

    Cut snowflakes from white fondant and place on the sides and top of the cake.


    9.

    Assemble bow using a small amount of blue buttercream in the center of the lid and inserting the pointed piece of the bow.

    You'll likely use 10-12 pieces.


    10.
