Suitcase Cake


This was for a friend moving from the U.S. to Canada (her hometown). I tried to include all the things that are special to her...hobbies, work, homeschooling, church missions...she is a special lady and I'll miss having her around.

The suitcase is dark chocolate cake with non-dairy chocolate buttercream. The decorations are all fondant and buttercream. The cosmetic bag is chocolate cake with buttercream and marshmallow fondant decorations with little candy pearls.

She's a Mary Kay Consultant hence all the makeup and "MK"!

I think everyone enjoyed it but I'm still pretty self conscious of my baking skills. It's so hard to please everyone! I *want* to make one flavor for each guest just to be sure they love it! :) Impossible!!! Especially with a group of 20 women! Everyone loved the design and I was so happy to have had the opportunity to play with hand drawn designs on fondant "Stickers". Thanks for looking!
