Cake Tools: Birds and Blossoms Hat Box

When I started making sugar shoes, I always accompanied them with shoe boxes made out of cake. So it was a natural progression to make a hat box with the open lid in a similar fashion. This hat box is extra special because it is decorated with my very own Bird and Blossom Onlay  and a strand of sugar pearls. I describe how to make a shoebox cake and “tissue paper” in my first book, The Confetti Cakes Cookbook.
