Tracy's Black Chanel Bag Birthday Cake
Tracy adores her Chanel accessories and we were asked to create this stunning designer cake for her 40th birthday.
We started with a 12 x 18” cake and fashioned it into the shape of a clutch bag. With great care and patience, we covered the bag with shiny black fondant and made a design on the surface to look like a quilted plush leather pattern. Just like the real deal!
The bag has a long shoulder strap which is made from a twisted black and gold fondant. The Chanel logo is meticulously re-created in gold and acts as a clasp for the bag.
We decided on a round base covered with a white fondant to give a great contrast. The base has a black ribbon around its border. A piece of pale gold fondant was draped over the base to give the impression of a cloth with soft folds and we then placed the bag onto the cloth in a standing up position.
To add that final touch, we crafted the words 'Happy 40th Birthday Tracy” in large bold golden letters and placed them in front of the bag.
This stylish and sophisticated cake was enjoyed by her 14 guests and the vanilla and chocolate meringue butter cream filling was a dream!
