Gift Box Cake

Everyone loves a gift, so I "present" to you a bow cake. The cake flavour is cinnamon spice.

I tinted the base of the cake skin tone, the lid and the dots pink, and created a turquoise fondant bow. The cake recipe:

2 c. flour (self-rising)
3 eggs
2 c. sugar
3/4 c. vegetable oil
1 c. water
1 tsp. cinnamon
1 tsp. nutmeg
1 tsp. allspice

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Butter and flour two 8 inch square metal baking pan. Mix dry ingredients in medium bowl to blend. Whisk in water, oil and egg in dry mixture until smooth. Transfer batter to prepared pans. Bake until tester inserted in center comes out clean, about 1 hour. Cool slightly in pan on rack. Makes 14 servings.
