Crocodile Leather Purse Cake

Project Description

Share a little about the materials, processes, and techniques used to create this cake The bag is comprised of a six-layer pound cake filled with mocha buttercream and topped with vanilla buttercream under the outer fondant layer. The hardware was made mostly with gum paste but also some of it was gum paste mixed with fondant just so that I could incorporate the color to flow in various parts of the bag. I wanted to use fondant I had left from other projects which is how I decided on the brown color. It was the most intricate cake I have made but also the most fun! What are you most proud of? I'm most proud of the fact that so many people thought it was a real bag. The details were amazing and I did not think I would be able to replicate it as well as I did. The instructor was instrumental in getting every detail outlined, I love her! What advice would you give someone starting this project? Watch the videos before you even begin....
