The Gift box cake

Everyone loves this cake.  It's so cute....the bow is made from a gumpaste and fondant mix.  It takes a little time to make the bow but other than that, it's a pretty easy cake to make for a beginner like myself and is a sure crowd pleaser.  This is a vanilla cake with vanilla buttercream covered in fondant.  You could use any basic vanilla cake recipe or even a box cake if you like.  You could also play around with colours and customize the cake to look however you like.
