Today’s feature is one of those designs that stops you, dead in your tracks. It’s seriously so incredible, it’s hard to fathom that it’s made of cake. So incredible that I felt it necessary to capitalize the word CAKE in the title of this post. If I could shout it, I would…. IT’S A CAKE! And it has me seriously saying “WOW!” It comes to us from a talented artist with a long history and amazing portfolio of WOW-inducing cakes. It is always a pleasure to welcome Elisa Strauss, owner of Confetti Cakes in New York, to the blog. With her incredibly realistic techniques and meticulous attention to detail, Elisa has been inspiring us to cake greatness for years. Better tie that apron down tight because we’re taking a look at one of Elisa’s newest designs and hooking you up with details for her new online class. Plus a special discount offer! First, let’s gush over this impeccably tailored 3D Designer Handbag CAKE!
If you’re already swooning, just wait until you see these close-up shots. From the textured alligator skin to the goldtone buckles, zippers and divots… this cake is unbelievable! Elisa captures every last detail down to the luggage tag and stitching.
Elisa of Confetti Cakes tells us about her design:
“It was fun to create something that looks so real! I used both an impression mat (from Marvelous Molds) and manipulated the fondant with my hands- people really thought the cake was a real handbag.”
