I made a Mulberry Alexa 🙂 It’s for Disa’s birthday celebration!
I was discussing the cake with 2 ladies – D and SH. They were contemplating between a Birkin in Bougainvilla or a Mulberry Alexa in Ink Blue. After they decided on the design, they wanted the insides of the cake to match the outside! If it was the Birkin, they wanted strawberries inside, if it was the Mulberry, they wanted blueberries inside! How cute 🙂
So i baked 2 big sheets of vanilla cake and whipped up some blueberry buttercream.
Took me a good hour to tint a whole lot of fondant blue! A really good workout there.
And i started weaving fondant. I know right. I never thought i’d ever weave fondant. I must be mad hahaha.
Got a good length, trimmed it and made it into a handle.
Covered some of the cake.. See the blueberry buttercream there uncovered!
Made the rest of the bag..
And added on the nitty gritty details 🙂
The stitching.. The buckles..
My favourite part of the bag is the handle 🙂
Was really happy with the outcome!
The back of the cake.
With a small tag that says ‘Happy Birthday Disa’
I met the two pretty ladies yesterday! They were so cute – they wanted a photo with me! I was so embarrassed because i was rather sloppily dressed in shorts and T-shirt and slippers. Oops. They even brought the actual bag with them to show me. Teeheehee it looks really good. I hope i’ve made your birthday more special this year, Disa! 🙂
I’ll update this entry again when they send me pictures!
This just in – I received and email and the girls sent me a picture of the cake with the actual bag!
Cool huh? 🙂
Layers of blueberry buttercream and vanilla cake! Heh.
Thanks for reading!
