For the Love of Louis Vuitton

 Close up view

Women love purses.  Actually us girls love all accessories from sparkling jewelry, to cute shoes and maybe a pair of styling sunglasses, but nothing else compares to the luxury of a Louis Vuitton purse.  Yes, there are other designer purses, but only a few fall into the same category of luxe as the Louis.  Our lucky client Sarah received this Louis Vuitton Speedy Purse cake as a birthday present from her husband. 

The Speedy Purse cake was covered in fondant and done in our Red Velvet Cake with Cream Cheese filling.  The sugar paste handles, zipper and buckle were all hand crafted.  This was one of our most labor intensive cakes and it took hours to hand paint each monogram and logo one at a time.  But it was worth it to hear all the great comments we got from the party goers.  Our client wasn't there to receive the cake when we delivered it but here's an excerpt from an email he sent and a picture from the party.  Sarah is one lucky girl!
Happy Birthday Sarah!

"Aloha Kristin, I just wanted to let you know that this is by far the most amazing works of art, I have ever seen! Thank you so much for taking this job last minute and being able create such an amazing, memorable piece.  Thank you very much…"

Champagne anyone?

This champagne bottle and wooden crate cake was made for my friend Huy's 27th birthday.  Huy and I have known each other for some time now when we met during my freshman year at the University of Oregon.  I'm not shy to say that during my freshman year, I was such a DORK!  Not that I still don't consider myself a dork sometimes but at least I stopped wearing my over sized Oregon sweatshirt and hair in a bun!  But since then Huy and I have remained friends and he won't let me forget my poor fashion sense during college.  

Over the last couple years Huy has become quite the wine-O and so I created this sculpted champagne bottle and wooden create cake out of Red Velvet Cake with Cream Cheese filling.  The box and cake board were embossed with wood grain texture and hand painted to resemble the colors of wood.  The label on the bottle was hand painted to resemble a Dom Perignon style crest and dusted with petal dust for an 'aged' feel.  The cake was finished of with white chocolate curls for the 'shavings'.  

Happy Birthday Huy!
