Here is a tools cake I made for my brother in law's 31st birthday. His wife, requested me to make a tools themed cake for her husband who was at that time, working in the construction industry.
The cake itself was a butter pound cake and I made a two tier cake measuring 6 and 9 inches round. The cake was covered in chocolate butter icing and the border was piped using chocolate buttercream in rope border.
The cake was pretty easy to assemble, and the only thing that took a bit of time for me to make were the fondant tools. My sister wanted me to have a lot of tools of the cake and I reckoned having them on the sides, all around the cake will allow me to display all the different fondant tools.
I made 4 different types of tools in fondant - screwdrivers, spanners, hammers and pliers.
These are basically what you need to make a tools cake like above:
Here is how I assembled the cake:
I removed the tools when transporting the cake to my sister's place though. I did not want to risk the tools falling of the cake as they were only attached with toothpicks. Since I already had the toothpick marks on the cake, reattaching them to the cake was very easy.
In case you are wondering, the numbers "31' on the cake were candles.
I must say, the tools did attract alot of attention at the party, especially since they were able to be removed from the cake and be held in hands.
I truly enjoyed making this tools cake and equally enjoyed the compliments I received from guests at the party.
Hope you enjoyed reading this post. Happy decorating :) :)
