Vera Bradley Handbag Cake

I’m so excited to show you this unbelievable Vera Bradley Purse Cake made by my talented friend Christy at C Star Cakes. Yes… this really is a cake!!

Vera Bradley launched four new handbag designs and this cake was inspired by one of the four patterns. Christy recently made this gorgeous white cake with butter cream frosting and fondant for The Vintage House who hosted a Vera Bradley spring launch party.

The cake took two full days to make!! WOW!

Christy said it took one day to bake, frost and cover with fondant, then another day to pipe all of the details and add the fondant straps.

Everything is edible except for the metal strap holders. She used Wilton’s Cutter Embosser tool for the stitching and quilting detail.

  5. Ahhhhmaaaazing! I love it! And no, I could never eat it! LOL! What’s cool is that a couple of days ago I went to the Vera Bradley website to see the new spring line and do all my ohhhhing and ahhhhing. So many new pretty designs to join all the older pretty designs 🙂

  6. Wow! She is amazingly talented. My only issue with a cake like that is that it’s too pretty to eat. I wonder if she cringes when the cake is cut after putting all that work into it? Gorgeous!

  7. Seriously, how could you ever ruin a work of art like that by eating it? It would be in a glass case in my house. And in 100 years, it would be in a museum…
