159. LV handbag

For her mom's birthday, my gal pal C had her mother's favourite handbag made into the form of a cake. Her mom is an excellent baker and an exceptional cake decorator, so I was a lil' worried I would embarrass myself taking her request.

The requirements were simple:-
1. Black Forest cake
2. No marzipan icing

The first thought was to use fresh cream, but as the bag was black in colour, I decided to use Dark chocolate instead of coloured cream. I also used chocolate for the logos - coloured white chocolate - which turned out quite pretty.

I would have preferred a finer texture, but that wouldn't have been able to be achieved quite as easily without using marzipan. Nonetheless, I was happy with the overall finished product and I'm glad to say C & her family members were too. *Smile*

Happy Birthday Auntie Cecilia!
