Gift Box Birthday Cake

This cake was for my neighbor's boyfriend's birthday. She and her husband have really helped get me cake business so I was very happy doing this cake. The cake was chocolate with butter cream icing, covered in fondant. I really admire people who can put together stacked cakes, and it looks sharp and clean. This cake was a struggle.

For this cake and the cake board I used a sponge to create a different kind of texture. It was so much easier than coloring fondant or painting.
