What are you most proud of? I am most proud of my attempt at the alligator skin patterns and the actual movement on the bag it looks used (almost real) or so I have been told by those who have seen the cake. I also like the zip on the top of the bag.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Watch the tutorial in full at first, listen to the advice given by Elisa Strauss and take your time especially whilst sculpting. Finally enjoy the craft.

I love the finished projects in this class. I also love the color and texture of your purse.

Beautiful. What color did you use to get that gorgeous shade? Thanks.

Hi, thank you for your comments, the colour I used was dusky pink and I dusted it with a light purple lustre although it's not obvious from the picture.

Great Job! So Beautiful! Did you use wire in the handles? Or did you simply use fondant to achieve that look?
