Share a little about the materials, processes and techniques used to create this cake: My sister is a great traveller so that was the theme for the cake. I found a vintage alligator suitcase photo on line and used that as inspiration, along with several techniques I learned from the fabulous Designer Handbag class taught by Elisa Strauss. Even though I did not do a handbag there were so many helpful things I learnt from the class and I did use the baggage tag demonstrated by Elisa which made a great addition to my cake. I also had some vintage luggage labels printed onto a sugar sheet.
What are you most proud of? I had to carry this cake in two pieces on a plane to take it to where my sister lives! I then finished it off with the detailed sugar paste pieces I took with me. I was v. pleased it all arrived unbroken!
