Tool Box Cake

I was called by a lovely lady who wished to order a cake to celebrate her father’s 90th birthday. After a relaxed consultation during which I got to hear many stories about her dad’s life, I suggested we build a cake around the theme of a tool box. There were going to be some grandsons at the party who would love nothing more than an iced cookie shaped like many of the tools their granddad used to own.

This cake was challenging in working out what materials to use to make it look the most realistic, but the part I loved the most was taking all the memories and stories I had written down during our chat and bringing them to life on and around the cake. I make some decorations out of fondant and iced some other pictures and words in buttercream.

Happy 90th birthday Garnet, I hope you had a wonderful celebration surrounded by those most dear to you!
