Gumpaste Ladies' Bags and Cupcakes


EDIBLE HANDBAGS, ANYONE?

Disclaimer: This project was not intended to violate or pirate any copyright, patent, or trademark.

Anybody who works for Chanel, please tell your bosses this was meant to be a personal project. Besides, I doubt any of your designer bags are edible anyway! Hahaha...

So here I am again, now with a new challenge in my hands. A surprise party for a 60-year old lady who's into bags and purses. The request was for mini-handbags of vibrant color schemes and a main bag cake topper.

Not much of a bag person (I think I swtich between 2 bags every year, depending how often I can be bothered to throw it into the laundry.), much less a designer bag person (Don't ask me to how to tell the difference between a Divisoria copy and the real thing.), I had to take some time finding bag designs.

                                                                                 








 I finally made a yellow hand bag, 
















a pink tote,





                                                                    
                                                                        









an orange satchel,













 






a blue and white purse,













                                                                              a green pouch,


















and for fun, a purple laptop case/clutch bag. 









It made such a pretty collection, the aching back and long sleepless hours made it all worth it!







 














pretty bags all in a row...

The client wanted to have a fuchsia (Spell fuchsia? sige na na, PINK na lang!) so I made a few heart/flower frills to fuse the color scheme and this is how it turned out:





For the main bag, I put black accents for contrast. I wanted to be playful and added a "signature" touch. It turned out to be a Chanel fuchsia hand bag with a fuchsia/black braided handle and silver accents.

For sale, P16K lang, orig, unused! For indoor use only, DO NOT WET!



Till the next cupcake project!

Ladies Handbags are one of the most important accessories associated with any outfit. Women use handbags on a large scale these days so as to get a chic and classy look and also to accommodate all their essentials comfortably.

Dear Admin,
I have visited a lots of site but you are the best that I have ever seen.
Do you always find yourself drawn to the same colour bags? Well, your penchant for a particular colour may just reveal a side of your personality you weren't aware you were displaying.
