A little while ago I was contacted by a man who wanted to get a cake for his wifes 40th birthday. She really loves bags and shoes so we went for a similar cake to one I had previously created, with a bag and pair of shoes ontop, surrounded by cupcakes. It is a very pretty, girly cake, the difference on this case was the shoes and bag were created in a Prada style…

The cake itself was a 10 inch round chocolate cake and was surrounded by 12 chocolate cupcakes. The large and small shoes and the bag were all made from gumpaste. For the large shoes and bag I brought black gumpaste which made the process a whole lot quicker and easier, as I didn’t need to colour it. I really loved how this pair of shoes turned out, it always seems slightly easier the second time. The small cupcakes have a combination of numbers and mini shoes. A tutorial of me making these can be found here
