I got a request from one of my husband's friends.
Can you make a cake for Karen for her and Kelly's bday?
Sure I said, then started with the questions. The only thing I was told was it had to be chocolate then the rest was up to me.
This is what they got!

Hang on, it really IS a cake! You, madam, are a baker extraordinaire.
That is a gift to be able to bake like that.
My dad was a baker as well, specialized in fancy cakes and pies. He'd have adopted you on the spot.

Thanks all!

It is a cake, the bottom of the jewel box is 4 layers of chocolate fudge cake with fudge cream filling covered in bittersweet chocolate icing and fondant. The lid is krispie treats smushed down and royal iced then coved in fondant. Everything else is fondant, isamalt gems. The only thing that you cant eat is their picture and the plastic on either sided of the picture in an actual fondant frame. I even made isamalt feet for the box, they came out an ivory crystal colour.

I had fun doing it and after in put from my almost adult children I remade the lid and happy that I did, it looked so much better the second time around.
Thanks again!

I used the tube that covers my candy thermometer and put a thin layer of crisco around it. I then made a small string of fondant, wrapped it around and formed it. When it hardened slightly I slipped it off and let it dry a bit more before I painted them with glitter paint made with glitter powder and vodka. Everything else is free formed.
Thanks for asking!
