My mini Chanel!!! Which I feel is just so cute :)
Kath asked about handbag cake and since we didn't need to go THAT extend in impressing and spending, I've suggested to Kath that we can have a miniature handbag, designer stuff in a smaller scale.
It was originally going to be an LV, but half way through the making I sent an SOS message to Kath requesting for it to be changed to a Chanel. I know now that it is not just impossible to do the imprints on this 3 inches bag, it is also almost a mission impossible (for me at least) to paint the monograms without templates.
Spent many hours doing this so naturally also spent a lot of SD card memory taking pictures :). So pardon me on the craziness of photo uploads in here.
The handbag was not to scale but meant to capture the gist of the handbag - quilted surface, logo and the gold chain strap...
Ohh no! Only recall now that I was planning to give the bag a pearl coating!! Too engrossed with sticking "pearls" until I forgot about it. :p Humphh... I would have been so much more impressive!
Okay... got the bag to sit on a layer of fondant "cloth" so that the bag can stand firm and not topple over.
The birthday message on a piece of sugarpaste "leather".
