Designer handbag cake

For a girl who loves shopping, make up and all things designer, I was commissioned to make a Prada handbag cake.

Designer Handbag cake

The inspiration for this bag was taken from a handbag I liked on the Prada website.

The most difficult part was creating the crinkled effect. I achieved this by rolling out long strips of sugarpaste and lifting them at various places using a dowel. The joints were then covered using strips of sugarpaste. The effect of stitching was done with modelling tools. Once the sugarpaste had dried out a little, the bag was dusted with a bit of pearl glitter to give it a shine.

All the cosmetics placed around the cake were handcrafted and edible. The colours and glimmer on the compact powder, eye shadow and lipstick were achieved by dusting powder colours on coloured sugarpaste.

The overall effect was that of the contents spilled out of a girl’s handbag. I hope it made her day.
