Gorgeous!! I'm curious, how did you do the lettering?

Thank you! I have a set of FMM funky letter cutters. I bought them on Amazon.

Great job! How did you do the Coach logo?

I took my coach purse, it was on a keychain. I then made a mold with a piece of fondant, just pressed it in . Then let it dry. Then pressed gum paste into the mold and put it in the freezer for a few minutes. Popped it out, let it dry and then painted it with highlighter gold.

where did you get the template for this particular design?

03/10/2013 Flag

I didn't use a template, I did it free hand. The Coach logo was from a keychain charm off a different style Coach purse that I made a mold of by pressing it into a piece of gumpaste and letting it dry. Then I used that as a mold.
