A toaster is the classic wedding gift. I know I got at least three of them! So when my friend asked me to create a cake for a kitchen shower, I knew a toaster had to be on it.
This cute pink toaster is made of Rice Krispie Treats and covered in fondant. Even the cord and plug are edible. It is sitting on a 10" round pound cake with a plaid buttercream tablecloth. The slices of toast are pound cake too. The close up picture shows the detail of the melted "butter" on the toast.
While I had a great time making this fun cake, I had even more fun decorating all the Devil's Food chocolate cupcakes that go with it. I made 24 cupcakes in all - each one was a miniature, sugary version of another food. I crafted them out of cake and buttercream, sugar paste, candies and chocolate. My favorite was the taco, but my son loved the sushi and cheese fries.
