Happy Birthday Sweetheart

This is for my daughter Sylvia, who is turning 19 in a couple of days.

Happy Birthday Sweetheart. Since the real bag is not within my budget, you will have to make do with this one for the time being. Will buy you the real thing when the time is right. That's a promise!

A strawberry yoghurt buttercake sandwiched with cherry-buttercream filling. The cake is covered with marshmallow fondant.

All the best to you ...

Your bag is really amazing. I'm one of the few who mistook the bag for real at KC and my first thought was eh, ginny posted wrongly? :P

wow aunty, im slyvia's friend and seeing this channel bag on her msn pic is amazing. I think it's definitely better than the real thing, coz the effort that and love that you've displayed in making this, is definitely worth more than money or gold :) *pEr*

Thank you for all the kind words. I was glad it turned out looking like a cake and not something else. :)

I made the fondant & baked the cake on Friday night. Took about 3.5 hours on Saturday to dress up the cake.

Ginny, I am still very amazed by your handbag cake ., so tempted to make 1 for my niece's 21st birthday. Can you please kindly tell me the recipe of the cake, and how much MMF i need for that size? What is the bake pan size I need?

God Bless
