Handbag cake for an awesome teacher

Project Description

Share a little about the materials, processes, and techniques used to create this cake fondant icing, Wilton colour paste (creamy peach & ivory), gumpate, aquarium tubing for handbag handle., silver diamante pendants (M & G), 3 loaf sizes fruit cakes, 3 dowels What are you most proud of? This cake was not easy, however, I am glad to have done it and my child's teacher Mrs MG, LOVES it. IT was a thank you gift which she never saw coming. LOL What advice would you give someone starting this project? I bought Elisa Strauss' DESIGNER HANDBAG CAKE tutorial here at Craftsy.com. The video is awesome and I'd strongly recommend it to everyone who is thinking of making a handbag cake. Be sure to view the tutorials many times and plan your handbag design well before you start. I am sure my next handbag cake will be better than my first. Good luck!

HI, Thanks for your wonderful compliment. My child's teacher is an awesome teacher so making this cake for her is our way to express our gratitude. Seeing the HUGE SMILES on her face is the inspiration I need to MAKE MORE CAKES!! I LOVE cake decorating.
