What are you most proud of? It was one of my first fondant cakes (5th or 6th I believe) and I was pretty happy with the outcome.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Definitely take Designer handbag class. You'll get much better results. I did not attempt to make the cake look realistic, because I never even thought it was possible. After taking this class I know I can make it look more realistic especially in terms of proportions.

I love the handle and clasp on your purse. You did a good job.
