Learn how to make a Birthday Present Cake, a great cake for a beginner to cake decorating. The Birthday Present Cake would perfectly suit a 1st or 2nd birthday celebration or christening and elements of the cake can be easily customised to suit either a boy or a girl. The cake features a large present with bow, sugarpaste model of a boy and decorative button design on the cake board. Super cute!

The sugarcraft techniques involved are ganaching and icing a square cake, creating a sugar model boy and sugarpaste bow.
