This cake was designed for a lady who loves shoes and handbags (who doesn’t?) and had a surprise when she received her beautiful cake.

The handbag was sculpted out of chocolate sponge cake before being covered in vanilla buttercream and bright pink icing sugar.

The flowers on the front have had edible lace applied onto the petals with tiny piped dots around the edge to give definition.

I imprinted a pattern into a piece of icing sugar and added eible lace onto another and then this was draped around the base like fabric.

The whole appearance was finished off with a delicate handmade shoe and letters with birthday wishes.

I am based in Nottingham so if you’d like me to decorate a similar cake for a Birthday or a Wedding Cake then please feel free to contact me for a quote.
