Shopper's 40th Birthday cake
My first cake for a big party (before I learned how to better smooth buttercream) for a woman who shops well and takes a lot of care in what she looks like before she leaves the house. She thought the saying was funny, although not everyone would, I guess! This was my first purse and first shoe; the purse is cake under fondant, and the shoe is gumpaste. Fantasy flower is gumpaste also.
