If there’s two things that all of us at PurseBlog love, it’s handbags and sweets. If you’re here, you already know about our handbag obsession, but if you follow PurseBlog on Instagram, that’s where you get a much deeper look into the collective psyche of our team. Spoiler alert: Our collective psyche is covered in frosting, much like this awesome Proenza Schouler PS1 Birthday Cake from Sweet Kat’s Creations in Chicago.
It’s such a close recreation of the bag and all its details that even the team at Proenza was impressed; they tweeted this picture of the finished product a few days ago, and naturally, we had to investigate further. Sweet Kat’s blog details the construction process for the cake, all the way to the use of a rolling puncture tool to get the stitched look around the edges of the fondant “leather.” It’s an impressively spot-on cake recreation, and with a filling of lemon cake and strawberries, I bet it tastes as good as it looks. Check out a few more pictures of the assembly process after the jump or read Sweet Kat’s full post via her blog! Or, if you want even more handbag sweets, you can revisit those awesome Celine Luggage Tote cookies or the chocolate purses we recommended for Mother’s Day!
