Gifts Galore Cake is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 15.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from I made a cake very similar to this for a friend's birthday. I done alot of inlaying then rolled together to make individual patterns on the boxes. I found using 2/3 fondant and 1/3 gum paste for the gift boxes worked great; using just gumpaste on the ribbon and bows. I was able to make them thinner, resulting in a lighter cake. Overall just too cute!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love the idea. Since my friends dont like fondant I'll leave the cakes only with icing and then the Fondant Gifts. Great for kids party and each can have their own cake!!. Try to do a X'mas one with red, green and white colors or with Circles like tree ornaments.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I've done a similar cake and it is wonderful! You can hide icing flaws and even broken pieces behind other pieces and the kids love the fondant pieces especially with the glitter on them.
