Handbag Cake

A friend asked for a handbag cake, with a design in mind. (Thank goodness – the sky is the limit with handbag themed cakes!)

The request was “pink, with handbags on top, and maybe some high heeled shoes around the side”.

This was the result…

I had no idea what kind of handbags to make, so I just went with the flow. I really liked the idea of miniature 3D handbags. I didn’t have a shoe cookie cutter either, so the shoes were cut by hand, tracing around a design I drew on some baking paper. It was bright and funky and fun to create. Now if I could stop my hands shaking (damn you thyroid!) and get some decent handwriting going…

Best of all, the birthday girl loved it.
