Secret Agent Briefcase Cake

I had a hard time trying to decide what kind of cake to make for Jack's secret agent party. The day before the party, I thought of a spy briefcase and I found a few ideas online. The cake is 11X17, with one chocolate layer and one yellow cake layer. The frosting is a chocolate buttercream, and I molded the handle, clasps, grappling hook, and snorkel out of fondant that I dyed. It ended up being a very big cake, which was good because we had a lot of guests. I'm very intrigued by fondant now and I'd like to try to working with it more.

You can find the recipes for the cakes and frosting under "dessert."

You did a great job and it sounds like it was delish!

I have watched some shows on the WE channel about specialty cakes and you can do a lot with fondant, it molds very easiy apparently.

I would love to see pics of the next cake masterpiece you come up with.

Are you making a cake for your dad's bday????

My dad only likes carrot cake - at least, he thinks he doesn't like other kinds of cake, but he doesn't try them. Crazy!

I'm thinking about making some cakes and taking them to my mom's school. That way I don't have to eat them, but I can practice!
