Tool box cake for a special birthday

For an 18th birthday a tool box cake was requested with the cake shaped as the tool box and a few tools modelled to go around the cake.

The cake was made from a 10″ square cake, cut to size and shaped.  It was then covered in two layers of icing and decorated.  The tools were made from white icing mixed with tylo powder to strengthen it up.  To give them the silver finish I used silver edible glitter mixed with rejuvenating fluid and a paint brush.  The tools were made from homemade rice crispie squares.

This was the first time I had made my own rice crispie squares and they were really easy to make.  I followed a Nigella Lawson recipe – click here to visit her page and try it for yourself.

Happy 18th birthday Elliot.
