Here's a Christening Cake for a friend. The bottom tier is a 10" square pound cake.
The gift box is made up of 2-8" square pound cakes stacked with raspberry filling between the layers. It is iced in buttercream with homemade marshmallow fondant. Everything is handmade. The box top is made of foam core and covered with fondant. Other than the top of the box, the entire cake is edible. The tissue paper is gum paste rolled VERY thin.
