This weekend I had a few very FABULOUS cakes that I have been dying to do for quite some time now.
The first is a replica of the Louis Vuitton Monogram Brown Speedy handbag. This was made for Bride-to-be Megan's "Fashionista" Bridal Shower.
This was my first handbag purse and I'm sure it will not be my last. I originally was going to hand-cut each of the symbols on the bag out of fondant but decided that my painting skills were better fit for this project. This was a trial and error cake for me and I'm glad I stuck with my gut. It took about 2 hours to paint the monogram pattern on the cake but it really paid off. (my neck and wrist are another story....perfection is pain!)
Next was a Stunning black and white damask cake for Theresa's 40th birthday. She was fun to work with and right up my alley..... She told me, "All I want is my fancy cake! So we went big....3 tiers of pure heaven. I just love damask and quilting, especially in black and white. We added a fondant sculpted
"T" and feathers for extra fancy flair!
