Louis Vuitton Cake Handbag and Shoe

Every year my daughter's school has a cake auction for a fundraiser. This year I decided to go all out and try to make the most money I could for the school. To make this really special I substituted the LV logo with RVE which are the initials of her school. I actually had the hardest time with the shoe as I used fondant instead of gum paste. Because the fondant takes longer to harden than gum paste I had trouble keeping the heel from collapsing in on itself. Lesson learned! Next time I will do it with 100% gum paste and hopefully that will work better.
I don't have a printer to print edible images so I used edible marker for the design. I think it worked out pretty well but it was very time consuming! As for the structure of the handbag I used a 9x13 cake and stacked it in 3 layers with buttercream in between. For support I used straws to keep it from falling over.
Thank you so much for looking. It was a joy to make and I can't wait to make more like it in the future.

Anna, Great Louis Vuitton Fashion Cake to add to the decorating contest. The school must have been very happy with your donation. Thanks for the fondant versus Gumpaste tip as well. Good luck!
