American Eagle Shopping Bag Cake

This one was for a young woman that LOVES to shop! It is a vanilla butter cake with vanilla buttercream and covered in mmf.

Fondant "tissue paper", gumpaste handles, and fondant flip flop.

Another flip flop and a very long fondant receipt. Did I mention that she really likes to shop?

Little clutch with stitching and button button detail.

This cake was serious fun to make. I hope I get to play with more bags in the future. Boy did that sound bad!

Happy Sweet Sixteen- Purse Cake

This has been a week of birthday cakes. I have had 3 due in little less than a week. Not that I am complaining mind you. I have enjoyed the rush immensely!

The purse is a firm butter vanilla cake with simple vanilla buttercream under the fondant.

It was for a Sweet Sixteen party, can you tell :) I was told that the teen was so tickled that she saved the plaque part with her name.

Here is a closeup of the gumpaste handle. To form the handle I let it dry over a Moose's Tooth growler.

Another Angle.
Well back to work. One more cake due on Thursday. Then out to dinner for my birthday!
