Additional Information

Step 1

In advance: Make toy box. Combine 2 teaspoons Gum-Tex with 21 oz. fondant. Roll out 3/16 in. thick using guide rings. Using patterns, cut 2 long sides, 2 short sides, 1 lid and 2 bases; cut one base vertically in thirds. Let dry on cornstarch-dusted board.

Step 2

Also: Make puddle dots on waxed paper-covered board using thinned royal icing in rose, yellow, green, violet and blue. Make 7-9 puddles in each color, 1 in. diameter. Make extras to allow for breakage and let dry.

Step 3

And: Make candy toys using painting method; make 2-3 of each shape in molds except sun, moon and star. Refrigerate until firm; unmold.

Step 4

Prepare 1-layer cakes for Stacked Construction and rolled fondant. For 8 in. cake, tint 24 oz. fondant rose; for 12 in. cake, tint 48 oz. yellow. Cover cakes and smooth with Fondant Smoother; reserve remaining fondant.

Step 5

Position cakes on double-thick foil-wrapped boards. Pipe tip 8 bead bottom borders in buttercream. Tint 1 oz. portions of fondant pastel blue, green and violet. Separately roll out, along with reserved rose and yellow fondant, 1/16 in. thick using guide rings. Cut 1/4 in. wide strips for toy box trim; attach to box pieces with damp brush, cutting to fit as needed. Assemble box with royal icing; let dry.

Step 6

Cut letters and numbers for toy box using Cut-Outs; attach to box with damp brush. Attach puddles to cake sides with buttercream. Position base pieces which were cut in thirds in box to raise baby topper. Fill box with candy toys and position topper. Attach lid with royal icing or melted candy, supporting with tissue until set. Position toy box on cake.

*Combine Lemon Yellow with Golden Yellow for yellow shown.

Adding color details to candies makes them more realistic and much more fun! For large areas of color, it's best to paint the melted candy right in the mold before the whole candy is molded using a decorator brush. Or, for very small details like vines, mouths and messages, melted candy should be piped onto molded candies using a parchment bag with a small hole cut in the tip.

The bead shape makes impressive borders outlines and accents on letters and designs; also a cute trim on clothing and gingerbread houses. The basis for making piped hearts and figure piping.

Toy Box Tot Cake is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 3.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from I made this for a friend for her first child's baby shower. It was really simple to make, fun to decorate and was perfect for the theme since she didn't know the sex of her baby yet. She loved it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Made this cake for a triple baby shower cake order, changed the design only slightly by adding three candy clay babies inside the toy boy and adding candy clay toys also! The cake turned out awesome and was a huge hit! Not as difficult as I thought it might be, the instructions were very clear and easy to follow! I also used wilton's block letter candy molds and added those as a border on the edges of the cakes along with a few of the dots shown. One of the Grandmother's loved the cake so much she saved the top tier of the cake to freeze for the lil girls first birthday!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from I did a much simpler version of this cake! I just didnt have the time to fill up the toy box, so on the top I just made it look like a classic alphabet block with the B-A-B-Y on each side. It was still just as adorable! I also like to save time by piping my bead borders on instead of rolling out individual fondant balls for the bottom. I can never get the fondant balls to be the same size and I can't seem to get them to stay on the cake very well. So I always prefer to pipe that with buttercream
