And as soon as I saw the Fusebox photo, I had to make it as Piratz is an Apprentice Electrician. I have to say it was one of the easiest cakes I’ve made. You start with a rectangular cake (only needs trimming to create a flat and regular shape). Butter ice it and cover with white Royal Icing. The trimmings from the Royal Icing are then coloured and shaped to make the various components of the fusebox. My parts aren’t as vibrant as the reference photo as I use cheap supermarket food colouring. Too much colour makes the icing too wet to work with so this limits how much colour can be added to such small amounts of icing. I made a few position errors but it was too hard to move them as they’d dried by the time I double checked the photo.
Piratz was very impressed with my knowledge of what a fusebox looked like and forgave my errors. He might not have been so forgiving if he’d known of the reference photo I’d worked from!
