This was my daughters creation, she designed it. She was very specific about what she wanted and stood by my side the whole time telling me what to do. She wanted a turquoise cake with the purse on top and candy jewelry all over it. I think it is a good compromise between the two cakes we were looking at in THIS post.
She was thrilled with the final results.
I was running out of time and didn't know how I was going to get the handle on the purse to stand up. I had floral wire on hand, but it wasn't working with the fondant. That's when I thought of restringing the candy beads onto the wire. I think it worked nicely. I also used the floral wire to attach all the candy necklaces to the cake.
I know it looks a little busy, but it didn't seam quite so crazy in real life.
Thanks for all your ideas and suggestions. In the end I let her make all the calls.
*Also I have to tell you I tried THIS fondant recipe instead of my usual. I have to admit, I am in LOVE. If you are thinking of trying fondant you should give it a go. It was so easy and worked like a dream. Thank you Laura for sharing Peggy's recipe with me.
