Phil’s Present Cake and Cupcakes

This was my first Gift Box Cake. It looked so real that the waiter at the restaurant asked me to remove the ribbon so he could cut the cake! He didn’t believe that it was all edible and made by me… that was an inspiring moment! I went with a whole black and white theme…
