I would like to make a bag for my daughter's cake.... a stand up bag... any ideas for templates.. would gumpaste/mexican paste be best or can i use sugarpaste with gum???
Have you seen the CC purse cake article:
Here's a cool bag: http://www.cakecentral.com/modules.php?name=gallery&file=displayimage&pid=1355419
And the instructions for creating it, using a round cake: http://www.cakecentral.com/modules.php?name=gallery&file=displayimage&pid=1356679
I cut a couple of 9 x 13 in half and stacked them. Then carved the top corners, rounding them off. Crumb coated and covered in fondant. Plain fondant, not gumpaste. The handles and decorations were made out of gumpaste a few days ahead. the logo was also painted on without a stencil. I have a few LV bag so I them as samples.
Hope that helps a little.
couldn't attached the pic so I'm adding the link to my bag pic
Cake Mooma - great purse. What color did you use to make the tan trim? Thanks
