Vintage Suitcase Cake

One of the amazing things about being a cake decorator is  being able to tell a story through cakes.
Every occasion, may it be a birthday, wedding, anniversary or shower has a story.  I'm glad and thankful to have the  chance to be part of such wonderful events in peoples lives.  A couple weeks back, I had a wonderful opportunity to do a welcome home cake for Madison. Being away from home for almost a year (studying in London), she thought it would be a great idea to make a suitcase cake. I totally loved her idea and this project got me really excited and nervous at the same time.  I knew that the project would be challenging because I want to make it look as real as possible, but like every other project, it is always a learning process for me so I always welcome the challenge.  Besides studying in London, Madison traveled a lot this year and when she gave me the list of countries she visited, I knew I had to highlight each one of them.   The whole look of the cake is vintage and every detail on this cake is edible, including the postage stamps and postcards all over.  The buckles were painted using a mixture of pearl dust, gold and cocoa and were made days ahead so it can dry on time. I certainly hope Madison and her family enjoyed her cake as much as I enjoyed making it.  Welcome home Madison!
