Kate Spade Handbag Cake

Kate Spade Handbag Cake, originally uploaded by bakers-cakes.

I'm not sure if I've mentioned this before, but I adore making handbag cakes! Every so often an order comes in that I just can't wait to get to work on, and this Kate Spade New York Gold Coast Elizabeth inspired cake was one that I had to stop myself from working on too early (the whole fresh factor, you know)!

Ironically, I am not much of a handbag person myself, although I found a bag that I love here on a serious markdown and I hope it lasts forever! But the purpose of this post isn't to discuss my style short-comings!!!

This cake is Buttermilk Vanilla Cake with Vanilla Buttercream Frosting and rolled fondant. The customer requested a purple cake (but the bag in real life comes in black and white).

Monogram Wedding Cake

Monogram Wedding Cake, originally uploaded by bakers-cakes.

It seems like I have been making more and more cakes without fondant recently, this past weekend was no exception. This elegant monogram wedding cake was served at a sweet intimate wedding in Durham this weekend. The wedding cake was Baker's Cakes Signature Chocolate Cake with Vanilla Buttercream Frosting with bands of off white rolled fondant.

This fun children's birthday cake was also served at the reception. The cake was Buttermilk Vanilla Confetti with Vanilla Buttercream Frosting. The R2D2 and C3PO characters are sculpted out of sugar paste:
