My chanel Handbag cake

Do you sell this cake? Yes Name of website or online shop Cake Toppers by Suzanna Share a little about the materials, processes, and techniques used to create this cake For this cake, I made a double chocolate cake with chocolate buttercream. I made this to stand up to the weight of the cake and ease of shaping. I covered this in white fondant, scored my lines with a ruler and stitch tool, then gave it 3 coats of black edible air brush colour. I then put this aside to dry completely for 3 days. I then sprayed the cake with clear glaze to give it the shine. whilst this was drying, I proceeded to make the chain and the logo, which took me another day to make, the chain was pretty fiddly. I then put the handbag on a 14" board and draped fondant to look like fabric and sprayed gold spray for the material effect, added some chanel sandals and Iphone to the board.

Q&A with Suzanna Socha

Araleslump asked:
How did u make the chain?
Suzanna Socha answered:
I tried several ways to make the chain, individual links, but they kept breaking, so in the end I bought a mould off ebay which was pretty expensive for a one off cake. I then cut small pieces of black paste, and poked them into the chain links to look like ribbon going through. Hope this helps.
