It was my boyfriend's birthday three weeks ago, and he is a super geek lol so i decided tosurprise him with an xbox cake despite the fact ive only ever really made two cakes before (burger cake - http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=291124.0  and mario cake- http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=293199.0) this was my first time covering a cake with fondant, and it was hard! i used his actual xbox, to trace on paper and then used the outline as a template to carve the cake into shape, the rest was just applying buttercream/ fondant and applying the details. let me know how you think it turned out !













c and c welcome!

thank you! i feel really happy with the way the cake turned out now!dont think id be making this cake again, and i didnt take any pics while making it for a tute, but here's a description of what i did. First,I used a large sheet of paper ( A3 would do i think) to make an outline of an actual xbox to use as the template.I used a 15 x 15'' cake tin to make the cake and then place the template on the top and carved around it with a sharp knife.then i cut the top of the cake to try and make the top flat (which you can see i didnt really manage to well!) i then cut it in half so i could ice it with buttercream in between the layers to make it all moist and yummy.then i tinted some fondant cranberry green and grey ( with black and green gel food colours ). I used white fondant to cover the entire cake after i covered it all with buttercream. then i looked at an image of an actual xbox while decorating the cake to make sure the details were accurate. i used silver lustre and painted it on with vodka onto the grey fondant to make it look like the cd tray and HDD bit on the top.Finally, i used icing to write the details on the xbox and the achievement unlocked bit.and there you have it! an xbox cake! Smiley hope that made sense!
