I would love some feedback on this one too. My first purse cake, and it turned out better than I expected though there is tons of room for improvement. Planning to attempt another one after I get feedback on this guy and then see how number 2 turns out!
The checkered pattern was done by cutting individual colored squares, sticking them together and then gently rolling over the whole thing to create a new sheet of fondant -- thats why there is a lot of distortion. I know there has to be a better way to do this, would love suggestions on that as well!
