This is the reverse of the blue pink flowered handbag cake that I created for a demonstration I was giving. As I explained before it is double sided in order for me to have more techniques to show to everyone.

As usual, when I am creating my designs, I like to try something a little different from the norm.

When decorating my cakes I like to use as little cutters as possible. Sometimes, when using the cutters, I try to make something out of them that they were not originally intended for.

This pretty pink handbag cake was designed for a special girls 16th birthday party.

A sponge cake was carved into the handbag shape and then covered in pink icing. A pin wheel was used to recreate a decorative stitching pattern along the edges and sides of the bag.

I made a mould of some different buttons to make icing buttons to decorate the front and back of the cake. I also added some hand made flowers to the front for good measure.

The base is also icing and patterned to look like fabric. It is finished off with a lovely font saying ‘Happy 16th Birthday Abbie’.
