Things you need to decorate the cake:

  • Chocolate butter icing
  • Fondant for the tools
  • Toothpicks

Cake decorating tips:

Fondant tools:

  • Make the fondant tools a few days ahead. I used white fondant and shaped it into tools as shown:

  • Poke a toothpick on the back of each tool. Leave them to harden for at least 1 day.
  • Once the tools are set, paint them using your choice of colors. I used Wilton colors for all the tools.

Assembling the cake:

  • Prepare your cake and place it on a cake board.
  • Cover the cake with chocolate butter icing.
  • Here, I used the rope border technique for the cake border. You can, off course, choose a different border if you like. Click here for other cake border ideas.
  • Finally, arrange the tools on the cake as you like. The toothpicks attached to the tools will help to hold them in place on the sides of the cake.
