Pyssla beads cake

We were given a task to come out with a cake made of boxes. I immediately replied, ‘Impossible!’. Back then I had cereal boxes in mind and was thinking how the heck am I supposed to turn those boxes into cakes?! Our client refused to accept my ‘NO CAN DO’ answer and insists that we come out with something in two days time! @_@

I was so stressed! Today is the final day for submission and FINALLY I came out with something!

I used our old gift box. Got Ethan to draw a line along the lid.

Apply glue on the bottom part of the line.

Sprinkle sand. Well, I thought sand looks like crushed nuts so … yeah :P

Apply glue on the lid and sprinkle Pyssla beads. Yep, I imagined Pyssla beads as the replacement for colored sugar rice.
