Tiffany + co cake

Those birthday gifts have got to be totally original, something they'll remember, something you'd be pleased to eat yourself. So what's the best thing to do? Make a personalised cake. Yes, I've got to admit it's a bad idea if your friends about to start a fat free diet (and you'd probably be in real trouble if you made it, but they'd eat it anyway) or if you don't like cake, but lets be serious, who doesn't like cake?

I'm already a keen baker with the surprising turn out of cakes, pies and biscuits that don't have a soggy bottom or collapsed top, so I thought I'd put these skills to the test.

I've already made numerous birthday cakes in the past from plain and simple to in the shape of a Louis Vuitton bag, but none as adventurous as this. It occurred to me that after watching Breakfast at Tiffany's that a Tiffany and co box would be the perfect idea for a cake. Not too overly ambitious, but not to ordinary.

Obviously I'm not a professional so I didn't expect things to go plain sailing as there was a few rips in the fondant icing which needed covering, but you learn from your mistakes and thats what I did.

To make things even better, it tasted great on the day even though I made it 4 days in advance. It's surprising what a blanket made of foil and cling film can do.

Fancy giving it a go yourself? Just Google "Tiffany box cake" and the rest is history. Happy baking!
