This cake is a two sided handbag cake which I made for a British Sugar Guild demonstration in a couple of weeks. It will be used to demonstrate lots of different techniques and hopefully inspire people to experiment with their own cake designs.

Would you believe this is a cake?

Ideal for any celebration!

I painted a pattern in the background to give it some depth. Then flowers made of petal paste were attached over this. The same flower cutter was used to emboss the handbag top and it was finished off using a homemade button mould to create the clasp.

The cake was finished off with tiny piped pale pink dots and silver painted to hightlight the finer detail.

Keep a look out for my next update with details of the reverse side it as it is even better than this one.
