I love the designer bags and your's is just stunning!!! Now, far as the licensing goes for these bags, how did you get permission from the company to sell?!! I would love to do the same but I don't want to get fined.

Hi Connie, in fact I do no sell these cakes in a "commercial" sense. I just did to practice and for an acquaince of mine. I am not sure about the licensing, maybe I have to be careful in the future. Thanks for the advice. XO
