I want to make my own birthday cake next month.
I am thinking on a LV or Coach bag.
How or what is an easy way to put the pattern on ?
I am thinking that drawing by hand might not look so good.
I saw some beautiful ones on CC and they looked perfect.

I think it's the fact that you asked for an "easy" way. There really isn't an easy way. I know that when I make my multi-colored LV cake i use food coloring pens and painstakingly draw them onto the fondant. I have attached the last pattern I made. It has the number 26 in replace of the LV because it was my friend's 26th birthday.

Yeah, no easy way, unless you use an edible image...would probably look wrinkled anyways.

Oh I do it in Paint on my Windows system. It's a dingy little art program Microsoft adds to the basic software you get with your computer. I just drew the initial symbols and then copy paste away till you get a size large enough. If anyone wants the pattern emailed to them just send me a private message and I will attach it in a reply.

Hey Rosie, I tried the stencil thing and it doesn't work. It actually comes out quite nice if you just draw it. I just lay the pattern down next the the fondant and then draw it free hand making sure that the symbol matches up with the pattern. I don't have a steady hand at all and have found that I can still make it look decent. The problem is I don't have any decent photos of the cake! icon_wink.gif

Can you print edible image sheets? If you google Louis Vittion Wall Paper under google images, there are some large, hi resolution images that print great......just cut out your fondant pieces for the side, brush with piping gel and apply the image and trim, then apply to the cake. Here a link to a nice pattern:

Thank you for answering my question Sparklekat6! and my goodness I admire you so much for being able to free hand!! thumbs_up.gif...I know myself and I'm sure I wouldn't be able to do that icon_sad.gif...

Too bad you don't have a pic of your purse cake, I'm sure it came out awesome!

I will try this method. I do not think freehand will work for me.
I will do that as my last choice....... icon_cry.gif
