Chanel Small Flap Bag Birthday Cake


My colleague, Mary, gave me a call a few days ago telling me that her daughter will celebrate her birthday on the 23rd of October and that she wanted to have a special cake prepared for her. Since Antonia, her daughter, is a very modern young lady, I thought of a Chanel Bag. Mary emphasized, that she wanted an impressive cake that Antonia would love the minute she saw it.

I started thinking of how I could make this cake look impressive, so the first thing that came in my mind was that it would look better if I placed the bag on a cake looking like a cushion, but then I thought that this wouldn’t be enough so I thought about adding a shoe and a bracelet to the cake.

Everything on this cake was edible, made with fondant and gumpaste. The cushion was a chocolate fudge cake and the Chanel bag was an orange cake.

Antonia was very impressed with the cake, and her friends too!

Happy Birthday to Antonia!!!

The orange cake was covered with white chocolate ganache cream. Ganache helped this cake to stay moist and fresh. 

 Then it was covered with fondant.


The final details were made after the cake was assembled together. For the silver details I used a silver edible color. I have to admit that it took me quite a while to finish all those bits and pieces.

"Κοπιάστε στην Κουζίνα μου" (από την Ήβη Λιακοπούλου)

ΑΦΗΣΤΕ ΤΟ ΣΧΟΛΙΟ ΣΑΣ ΚΑΙ ΜΠΕΙΤΕ ΣΕ ΚΛΗΡΩΣΗ ΓΙΑ ΤΟ ΒΙΒΛΙΟ! -------------------------------------
Η συμπατριώτισσα μας και φίλη μου Ήβη Λιακοπούλου, από το μπλογκΚοπιάστε στην Κουζίνα μου, που ζει στην Ελλάδα εδώ και πάρα πολλά χρόνια, επιτέλους μετάφρασε στα Ελληνικά το βιβλίο της Mint Cinnamon & Blossom Water, Flavours of Cyprus, Kopiaste, το οποίο αγόρασα μόλις κυκλοφόρησε, πριν 1½  χρόνο περίπου, και πραγματικά εκεί βρήκα όλες τις παραδοσιακές συνταγές της Κύπρου. Ήδη μαγείρεψα πάρα πολλές συνταγές και οφείλω να ομολογήσω ότι καμία δεν με απογοήτευσε.
Εάν έχετε συγγενείς και φίλους, Έλληνες, Κύπριους ή γνώστες της Ελληνικής γλώσσας που θέλουν να μάθουν την Κυπριακή κουζίνα, σίγουρα ένα τέτοιο βιβλίο θα εκτιμηθεί δεόντως. Κάντε το δώρο στον εαυτό σας ή στα παιδιά σας που είναι φοιτητές και θέλουν να μάθουν να μαγειρεύουν, ή ακόμη κάντε το δώρο στους φίλους σας αυτά τα Χριστούγεννα. Στοιχίζει όσο δύο καφέδες!! Μόνο 6 Ευρώ από το μπλογκ της, σε μορφή pdf, αλλά εάν το θέλετε σε άλλη μο…

Mickey Mouse Birthday Cake

This cake was made for Demetris, an adorable two year old boy!  I hope he likes it. His mother told me that he likes Mickey Mouse very much!
Here you can see the cake decoration steps.  I used buttercream, in order to make the surface of the cake smooth.

This cake took me 3 hours to decorate it. The black part was the hardest to finish. I used wilton's black decoratcing icing. Happy Birthday Demetri!!!
