No Bones About It
You're a Sweet Friend
I love the cakes with the witch's feet sticking out of the top. The one's I've seen must have used shorter witches for this, cause she's kind of messy when she goes all the way through the cake.
For this one I started with my ice cream container. Removed the lid and handle, covered it with purple felt and flipped it upside down. I then glued it to the plate. I glued on pieces of orange sponges where I wanted it to look like she was diving in or breaking out (The top and the one side) leaving a spot that I could glue the head and feet right to the base . Next I frosted the cake with Spackling ( See the Fake Bake Page for How To Make This) using a large star tip and just making single dabs until the cake was covered (Except where the sponges were) Looking back I think I would had like it better had I just frosted it smooth. She would had stood out better. (Does everyone do this ? AFTER finishing a step, think I should of done this instead) Anyway it was done so I then added the witch. Her legs and boots are taken straight from the gnomes. They are Dollar Tree hair rollers and DT baby boots (See The Sock Gnome Page for instructions). I glued the legs together at the crouch and added some purple tulle and black felt I gathered as a skirt. I glued the legs onto the top of the cake making sure the hot glue was actually hitting the base and not just the sponge. This made it more secure. Spackling would secure it more later. Her face is made with a styrofoam ball I painted green, her hair is purple ropey ribbon I got from DT (Thinking ropey ribbon is not the actual name of it) Her hat is black felt, her nose is a wooden ball I painted green. (yep a gnome nose) And her eyes are 1/2 wooden balls (Again I stole these from the gnome supplies) I just painted. I glued the completed head right to the base of the cake and supported it more with pieces of the orange sponge. I then smeared purple frosting on her face and hat. I finished by finishing off the rest of the cake with some leaves I piped with spackle and some purple glitter pumpkins I got from DT.
A lot of people use styrofoam blocks for the base of their Fake Cakes. Styrofoam blocks can be expensive. For this one I used a cubed ice cream container (Walmart's cheap brand comes in these). I covered it with felt so the spackle would stick.

I opened the pumpkin from the bottom to clean it out. so I won't have a "lid" on the top

I used felt to make the faces and glued them to the boxes. Keep in mind when placing items on the top of the box to only glue to the top flap making sure the box will still open.
I cut a slot into the witches hat for the handle. The hat is not glued on and is removable so you can still open the box
For these I found a patterned background clipart and printed it on the back of the Keepsake Box pattern before I cut it out.
