I love making cakes for family and friends, but it’s fun getting themed cakes from businesses too! Mamabargains.com just celebrated their 5th birthday and ordered a cake to celebrate.
All that they requested was to have the icon of the website on their cake. I asked what the first thing they sold on their site was and the answer was a Timi & Leslie Diaper bags. So I decided to base the design on one of their first bags and carve a diaper bag cake.
I picked the messenger bag in the Sahara pattern. I loved how it turned out! The hardest part was the silver hardware. I started by pre-drying them, then I painted them with silver edible paint.
I carved it first, the frosted it in a white chocolate ganache. Then covered it with fondant, and added the top flap and the side pockets. I added all the turquoise detail work. Then added the strap and pad and silver hardware. I love love LOVE how it turned out!!!
Finally topped it off with their logo on top! If your company was celebrating a birthday what cake would you want?Do NOT miss a single post.
