Shop Til You Drop

Shop Til You Drop

For the birthday girl who LOOOOVES to shop, with all her best friends…….Gucci, Chanel and Chloe! The Chloe box is Italian Cream Cake with Cream Cheese/Toasted Coconut/Pecan filling, with hand-painted Chloe logo. The Gucci shopping bag is Red Velvet Cake with White Chocolate buttercream filling & gumpaste decor. The Chanel purse is a Dark Chocolate cake with Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough filling. It’s glazed with a mixture of corn syrup & Everclear, which worked SO beautifully—-dried completely without being sticky & held it’s shine like patent leather!

Funny story about the purse. When I delivered the cake, I was standing talking to my client who had ordered it for her friend. Suddenly, from behind me, an arm reaches around and a little finger pokes RIGHT INTO THE PURSE! Eeeeekk!! I turned to see a boy about 8 years old as his mom & I hollered ‘NO!’ at about the same time. He said ‘why, what’s wrong?’ His mom said, ’That’s a cake! You can’t touch it!’ He totally argued: ‘No way, that’s not a cake. That can’t be a cake!’ We both told him it was, & then he said ‘well, if that’s really a cake, then why is it so squishy?’ And I was thinking ’isn’t cake ALWAYS squishy? What’s he been eating?’ LOL! Fortunately, I was able to smooth the dent out almost completely.

Cakes ROCK!!! Christy Seguin, Austin, TX
