I think this is a good cake to end my fondant/cake exploration journey on. I planned on doing just one cake a month, but even that was too much. I'm ready to start something different. I really want to pick up a paintbrush and start painting again. I've said that several times over the years. Now is the time. Stay tuned.
This cake was make for a friend's grandpa who turned 80. He was a handyman and often worked on lawnmowers. A toolbox and the number 80 built from wood is the direction I was going.
Carrot cake was made for the old school toolbox.
This was my first time using Rice Krispie treats as sculpture pieces. It was a little daunting at times, but I worked through it and of course ate what I didn't use.
The 80 was red velvet cake.
