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!
