Whimsical New Year 2014 Gift Box Cake

Sydney loves bows on boxes, she thought a three tier gift box cake with whimsical flowers, swirls, and of course bows would be an awesome New Year’s Eve cake! We wanted each tier to have it’s own special gift, the bottom is filled with peace, the middle with a year of hope, and the top love. The ribbons on each layer match the lid of the proceeding cake and we chose colors that are bright and cheerful.
As the last holiday of 2013 and first holiday of 2014 is upon us we wanted to give you a fun tutorial to start the New Year right as we say goodbye to 2013 before we welcome 2014.

Wrapped Roses

To create the roses mix 50% gumpaste with 50% fondant and color the 50/50 mixture (we colored them light pink). Start with a rectangle rolled out thin enough to fit in the pasta machine (if you do not have a pasta machine roll the paste transparent thin). Once rolled to transparency smooth with your hands and cut a rectangle. Fold the rectangle in half lengthwise, start at one end, roll tight in the center. As you begin to roll more 50/50 paste loosen the roll, pinching continuously after each fold, add a little curve, and tuck the end under to finish. Cut the bottom so the fairytale rose stands flat. Let dry before coloring with petal dust. Once the roses are dry dust with cosmo petal dust and fairytale pink.

This would be a perfect cake for any New Year’s party.
Happy Holidays!
