Chanel 2.55 Cake

It was my sister’s convocation on friday. I decided to bake her a cake she wanted as a gift. So about a week prior to her convocation, i asked her what cake she wanted. Immediately she said “Christian Louboutin!” By the way, in case you don’t already know, my sister S is shoe crazy. She has so many shoes in her room that she ended up taking photos of her shoes and labeling them on her shoe boxes so it’s easier for her to choose to match her outfits. I know right, madness.

I was rather excited to make her the CL cake. I had it all planned – the shoe box and black heels with the red soles. But i was so caught up with school i couldnt do it on time! My gumpaste heels did not dry in time. Plan backfired. Boo. I remembered her telling me the other alternatives – Chanel 2.55 or YSL. Yes my sister thinks that highly of me. Hahaha. So there. I made her a 2.55 within a day – I amaze myself sometimes.

She now expects the real one from her boyfriend LOL

I baked the cake from 8 to 10am. Then went for school, came back at 2pm and continued assembling and decorated the cake until 530pm. I should join Ultimate Cake Off hahahaha. Kidding.

We went out for dinner at a chinese restaurant and came back for the cake.

Tah dah, my first Chanel 2.55. I knew it looked like it because when my dad first saw it, he went “Wah 2.55!” Heh.

My sister chose a white Chanel 2.55 – which i was secretly happy about because i didn’t have to spend half my day tinting fondant black.

I brushed on luster dust over the white to give it a nice shine too.

Added the details in gold 🙂

Strawberries and cream! Didn’t add too much cream/strawberries because i was afraid it’ll slide and fall apart! Turned out well 🙂

Hehehehe.

Congratulations sister. We’re all proud of you!

PS: Check out Ovenhaven’s Chanel Bag cakes too! She makes them all the time 🙂
