Craftsman Toolbox and Paint Pot Cake
One of my favorite customers wanted a surprise cake for a 50th birthday party held at the Locanda Verde Restaurant on Greenwich Street in Manhattan. She requested a yellow vanilla cake with chocolate mousse filling.
The guest of honor is a DIY fanatic, so we created a red Craftsman toolbox cake, with a figurine perched on top. Inside are an assortment of tools: saw, spanner, screwdriver, measuring tape, hammer and even nails, plus a tipped over pot spilling yellow paint.
All the accessories were sculpted from sugar paste, with an edible image for the paint pot label.
