This cake was made for a lady who loves shopping. What better way to celebrate than with a shopping bag cake! I built the cake pretty tall in a rectangle shape. Then I paneled the cake with white fondant.
I added some gum paste roses to the side of the cake, I love how they look. They really balance out the cake.
To make the handles I took some thick wire and bent it. Then I wrapped it with white fondant before inserting it into the top of the cake.
I rolled out tons on red fondant using my pasta roller to get the pieces very thin. Then I cut small rectangles of fondant and ruffled them by folding them up and allowing them to dry slightly before attaching them to the cake.
