What are you most proud of? Creating my own design & template, carving my first cake, and that HUGE buckle!

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Give yourself plenty of time and remember to double check the number of pieces of hardware your handbag requires. I was short one square ring when it came time to assemble the cake and had to make one on the fly.

How did you do the Zebra Stripe? Was the fondant already like that?

@miasews I painted the zebra stripes on using black gel food colouring thinned with vodka. ;)
