This cake was made for Rodney and James to celebrate their birthdays at Tango. They usually share a cake for their birthday since they are only a few days apart.
I decided to make a toolbox cake for the both of them because they are the ones that everyone turns to when something needs to be fixed up there. Sometimes I'll talk to Rodney while he's at work and running cables. Not assisting his editor or working on a commercial, but running cables. They're both pretty handy guys so I guess that explains it!
This cake is actually 6 cakes. All are 8 inch squares, three carrot and three chocolate. The toolbox handle was made from a 50/50 fondant gumpaste mixture, as was the name plate. The tools were made from white chocolate and candy molds. I colored each portion the way I wanted it and then painted the silver parts with luster dust. I'm pretty pleased with the outcome of this cake, specifically the tools. The one thing Rodney said while I was making this cake was, "I can't wait to take a bite of that wrench!" I'm pretty sure he did too!
