What method do you use for designer purses to look most authentic?

Hand painting the design on it? Creating a custom stamp or using edible image?

It's my first purse request and I'm not sure which one to try since I don't have much time.

TIA

The link above is to my first Louis Vuitton purse cake that I did a couple of weeks ago. I don't like to pipe anything if I don't have to because I obsess over things not being perfectly uniform. If the design hadn't been so busy I might've used a different approach, though. The client sent me a picture of her best friend's purse and wanted the cake to look as much like it as possible. The birthday girl and was thrilled with it and she told me that everyone at the party loved it. Any other questions, just pm me!

The symbols are made with cutters I ordered from
www.polymerclayexpress.com/cutters2.html
(Mod edited to provide working link.)

- PCSSQ 5 Squares, 3/8 - 3/4" $9.00
- Kemper Circle Cutter Set 3/16" - 3/4" All 7 Kemper Circle Cutters $14.00
- PCSL 4 Lilac cutters $8.00

The last cutter is found here

The letters are FMM Tappits. I stretched the letters while they were still pliable and glued them together.

Everything was applied to the cake before painting with a mixture of gold dust and vodka.

There is a tutorial available on CC from Sugarshack but she pipes her letters.
