Made Chanel purse with Icing Images edible sheets-NO fondant!

post #1 of 26
Thread Starter 

This is my 1st purse cake. It is a bit crooked and could use some fine tuning, but I was excited because it is covered in Whipped cream (Pastry Pride) and NOT fondant. My customers do not ever request fondant so sometimes making a cake can be a bit of a challenge.

I frosted this one in pastry pride, then covered it in the brown paper from Icing Images. I quilted it before it got too "wet". Very gently, I might add, with the stitching wheel. The edging was done with modeling chocolate. The chain handles are not edible.

Once the paper absorbed the moisture (1 hour after being applied) it took on a shiny leather look. I am very happy with the way it turned out!

My very 1st purse cake! It is styled after Chanel. All edible except for the chain handles. This is not fondant or gumpaste. It is frosted with Pastry Pride and then covered with a thin sheet of brown Icing Images edible paper. It was quilted when the sheet was semi soft from the moisture of the whipped cream. The edging is modeling chocolate. No nasty fondant to peel off. I am very happy with the way it came out!

That is really great, I am very impressed! I would say close to 90% of my clients request minimum fondant too, and it's hard.

Very nice! I almost bought the paper a few weeks ago, but was afraid it would slide off like fondant does on the frosting. I have the same issue around my area, people don't want buttercream and that's fine with me because I don't like to work with it, but as you said we are very limited what we can do with that kind of frosting.

Great work! I love seeing someone utilise an existing product with a new technique to make something altogether unique!

Life's too short to make cake pops.

This paper will definitly not slide of of anything. If you use it on fondant or crusted buttercream, just moisten the back of the sheet a bit with water and put on the cake. It will not slide!

Great job!! Just curios..what did you use for the handles? I know you said its not edible. Is it the handles off of a real purse?
