Q&A with marie-claude

Beader asked:
Are you sure that's a cake and not a real leather handbag? It looks so realistic! I'd love to own a purse just like that.
marie-claude answered:
Thanks! I did this cake for a friend's wife and he did not know what the cake was going to be. when he entered my kitchen he did not look very excited about the cake and I was a bit disappointed. and then he asked me where the cake was!! he was sure it was my purse on the counter! I knew then that my goal was achieved
SarahSpeir asked:
Amazing cake! i was wondering how you made the texture?
marie-claude answered:
I took a plastic pattern from CK products. I wish I had ordered the one from make your own, it would have looked even better I think.

Good luck! Make sure that your fondant is very cold before you apply it to the cake.
