Le gâteau haute couture!

Hello friends! I am super excited to share my latest custom cake order with you!  Behold, my very first venture into the world of high fashion! Louis Vuitton Cake

 

Louis Vuitton Cake

 

I had a lot of fun constructing all of the details on this Louis Vuitton purse. It took a while to make the fondant embellishments and to hand paint the symbols with shimmer dust, but the finished product was well worth the effort.

 

Did I mention how time consuming that zipper was? Perhaps some facts are better left as secrets!

 

To make your very own Louis Vuitton replica make sure you have:

– brown,  ivory and yellow fondant (plus red if you choose to make the roses)

– gold shimmer dust  and a brush for gold details

quilting tool for fine stitching details

 

I recommend making the fondant pieces ahead of time so they can dry out a bit. Then you can simply “glue” them onto the cake using water.

I still cannot believe that it is already December! I couldn’t be more excited for the amount of baking that is going to occur in the next month! Stay tuned 🙂

    1. Thanks!! I would guess that it took about 10-12 hours of work…although the process took longer from start to finish because of a) procrastination and b) my lack of a stand mixer! It’s a good thing Christmas is just around the corner! 🙂
