Louis Vuitton Birthday/Anniversary Cake

It’s been a busy month here at the Sweet Element cake studio … which hasn’t left much time for blogging!  Luckily, I’ve managed to find a little quiet time this weekend, so I thought I would share one of the latest cakes that we delivered last weekend to McLoone’s Rum Runner in Sea Bright, NJ.

This cake was a combination 50th birthday & 25th anniversary cake that both daughter & husband worked on in secret as a surprise for one very lucky lady!  The clients wanted to incorporate some of mom’s favorite things – Louis Vuitton luggage, some Chanel makeup and Stuart Weitzman shoes.  I believe mom also received a real diamond ring as an anniversary gift, so I also included a “faux” sugar ring on the very top of the cake as well.

The cake was comprised of a variety of flavors:

The trunk was 1/2 chocolate devil’s food cake filled with chocolate buttercream and 1/2 red velvet filled with cream cheese frosting, and the entire thing was frosted in vanilla buttercream and decorated in fondant.

The luggage atop the trunk & the small makeup bag were coconut cakes, filled & frosted with vanilla  buttercream, and decorated in fondant.

The shoebox & ring box were both chocolate devil’s food cake filled with chocolate buttercream, frosted in vanilla buttercream and decorated in fondant & gumpaste.

Best of all, a few days after the party, I received emails & a few photos from both daughter & husband to let me know how much Debbie loved her cake!

I just wanted to thank you for the beautiful cake on Saturday. It was a huge hit at the party and most of all my mother loved it! She didn’t even want to cut it because it came out so good! People were absolutely raving about out real it looked and how delicious it tasted.
