The purse cake

Purse cake with gum paste brooch
This is my finished purse cake and I am really satisfied with the final result. The gum paste brooch looks really gorgeous on the purse cake. It’s amazing how a simple round cake can be turned into something very chic!

I have been taking photos of the process, so now I only need to edit the photos and write a tutorial. I hope that you like my purse cake too?

Happy Caking!

    Great job and I love coming to your website. Now I need to know how do you get such great photos? clean, clear, and very awesome.

      I use Photo Shop and play around with my camera. The best days for taking photos are on cloudy days. Direct sunlight can be too much sometimes and you would need to soften the light with white fabric.
