So I have to make a cake in September for a Spanish high end fashion designer, they are gifting the cake to Spanish Vogue magazine. They came to me with some inspiration pictures, cakes made to look like a hatbox, with a shoebox or bag on it etc. Their budget is €1000 so it can be a pretty big cake with lots of leeway for shapes, sizes, carving etc.
Thing is, I don't want to really do the same old same old hatbox thing. I really like a design by Planet Cake which is like a dresser with fashion items on it/around it, but I don't want to just copy the idea.
Can you think of anything original I can do?? I am terrible at coming up with original ideas! The designer in question makes female clothing, doesn't do accessories, so I can't just plonk a Chanel bag and Louboutin shoes on a cake, it would be really wrong on many counts! They did say I could do a bag if I wanted, but it would have to be generic. His winter 2013 collection is really dark, hardly any colour, some splashes of red. I could maybe model some mannequins wearing some of his designs too. I have to include his logo somewhere, and I have to put a copy of Vogue on the cake/board too. I've googled "fashion cake" and other such terms, but I'm really not seeing anything inspirational. I'm stuck....!
