Recently they used the wedge-shaped boxes to represent 3 slices of cake and one slice of cherry pie (“Divine Desserts”). Here, as with the fruit slice boxes, the Illustrations were done by Hiroko Sanders whose “attention to detail in cake texture and decoration,” we are told, “came from hours of research in bakeries and her own kitchen.”
These boxes may be the perfect shape to represent a slice of cake, but as tissue packaging, the connection seems more than a little tenuous. (In contrast, say, to Martha Stewart’s cake-shaped cake-mix boxes.)
Remember last year when we looked at package-shaped cakes? Well, tissue boxes are among those consumer packaged goods that also exist in cake-form. There are, in fact, many people who celebrate Birthdays and other holidays with cakes shaped like Kleenex boxes.
Others want their cake to be of the debranded, domestically-enhanced type. For those people, there are tissue box cakes, frosted not with logos, but with edible tissue box cozies. (See: Kleenex Christmas Packs)
“It’s a cake modeled after my Layer Cake Tissue Cozy….so it’s a real cake that’s supposed to look like a fake cake.”
Put another way: it’s a cake disguised to look like a tissue box wearing a crocheted cake disguise.
