I had another opportunity to make another handbag cake recently. This time it’s a Burberry handbag cake. This lead came from a fellow cake decorator who is not into making handbag cakes. Her wedding planner friend did not specify which model he wanted. So it’s up to me to make.
I wanted to try handpainting the bag since it was just lines. Made a small cake and found out that the lines were not easy to paint.
I had to simplify the handles knowing that the actual cake will travel from one place to another after I deliver them. Not taking any risk having the handles fall off in transit.
After making this practice cake, I realised that I need to see more details of this bag. The photos on Burberry’s website did not show the details that I wanted. So, off I went to Burberry’s boutique in KLCC to have a closer look. I had to pretend to be a potential customer for this purpose 🙂 Luckily the Burberry staff was nice enough to allow me to look at the bag and try carrying it. Hey… I actually like the bag 🙂
Well back to my handbag cake. This is the actual one delivered to my friend’s place.
Used edible image for this. I had a tough time getting the handles to stay in place. Thank God, it survived the 30+km ride to my friend’s place last night. I am not sure of the handbag’s journey today. Keeping my fingers crossed that the handles will be stay put while in transit and throughout the wedding ceremony!
