Another SweetElement cake creation! After a week of baking, and a frenzy of decorating in two days … this turned out to be one of my favorites. The cake was a blend of my favorites … a 3 layer tender chocolate devil’s food cake filled with coffee buttercream, chocolate hazelnut buttercream and frosted in vanilla buttercream. All decorations were made out of fondant, which is unusual for me since I prefer to work in chocolate. Every once in a while though, it’s good to work in another medium – each presents it’s own advantages and disadvantages! This was a doozy of a cake … 18″ x 12″ x 6″ – a copy of the Coach Signature Stripe Multi-Function Tote. The one major modification being in color – for the birthday girl’s favorite – purple! Why the accessories? I was trying to think of what might fall out of Bernadette’s bag … and instantly thought of the important things in her life … her new baby boy, her puppy, her car and her home!
