And this is our take on them:
The sides of the box are made from fondant as is the 'tissue paper'. The cake inside is a rum laden chocolate biscuit cake.
I got the following text the next day: "Niamh she loved it, thought she was going to have a heart attack when she saw it. She did not want me to cut it! Had to let her take some photos for about 30 minutes. The cake tasted every bit as good as it looked, theres none left. I only got a tiny bit. Thanks for the most amazing cake ever x" - Maureen.
