Just because you’re 18 doesn’t mean you have to have a grown up cake, at least that’s what my son thinks! He requested a Treasure Chest of all things, as he had fond memories of one he had as a child.
So this was the result….it was so heavy with all that sugarpaste, the lid just about held up!
I just kept cramming coins under the lid to hold it up! My favourite bit was the scroll, made by me on tea-stained paper. The demerara sugar sand was quite effective, although I recommend an edging of sugar paste to stop it sliding off all over the floor!
