Manolos & Handbag Birthday Cake
I was asked to make a cake that reached Bella’s couture side. Bella loves beautiful bags and shoes (don’t we all), and the only brief I was told was make it bling!
This is my “bling” cake made for an 18 year old!
Everyone should know the shoe by now, Carrie made this brand and this particular shoe very famous! When I was asked to make a shoe, I knew I wanted to make this one. When it was finished, I wanted to slip it on and trip the light fantastic!
The handbag was different. I wanted something that was bling, but also age appropriate and fun and everything that a girl would want. I went for a quilted, glossy pink bag, with lots of gold accessories.
Everything you see here is completely edible. The shoe is made from fondant and given a silver lustre finish and little silver sugar beads made the diamond brooch on the foot.
The cake is white chocolate raspberry mud cake with white chocolate ganache.
