Gucci Birthday Cake

I am officially jealous of this cake. Jealous of the receiver, jealous of the people that could actually create and design this, jealous of all who helped eat it. This is indeed a cool cake. Looks like this was given as a gift for a 21st 26th birthday. And while so many people equate lots of shots on their 21st 26th, a designer handbag cake would have been up my ally so much more. This is a Gucci Cake complete with a Gucci Boston Bag on top of a Gucci Box. Even the little cookie would have made my day. I can not imagine the price for a cake like this, novelty enough that it would end up being totally ridiculous, but isn’t it amazing?

I am now rethinking our wedding cake. Why did we go traditional when I could have had a full fledged designer handbag cake for all of our guests. My birthday is coming in September though. Instead of Gucci, I would prefer more of a Chanel or Hermes. Just sayin’. [Image via Flickr]

    it’s adorable, though i think it’s a 26th birthday cake. hence…”21st..+5″

    some people never get older than “30”, i guess this lucky fashionista never gets older than 21.

  • Melanie

    For the price of that cake….they probably could have bought the real bag!

  • Apparently I can not read today….

  • dela

    In South Florida you’ll find a lot of designer handbag cakes. Last year we were looking for a very specific cake for my niece’s birthday and time and again we came across these beautiful designer cakes and that too at relatively reasonable prices.

    I think for Wedding nothing is better than a timeless traditional cake.

  • Do you remember any of the places Dela?

  • Abigail

    I love this cake!! I hope it was just as yummy as it looks!

  • dela

    Two that I remember off the top of my head are

  • Brown Suga

    I created the above cake for a fashionista’s birthday party in Soho. The cake was ordered by her boyfriend who also gave her the actual bag as a gift! The “bag” was an old-fashion butter pound cake filled with vanilla/almond buttercream and the “box” was also butter pound cake fiilled with fresh strawberries and french vanilla mousse! Melanie – believe it or not the cake actually cost less than the bag :)

      Thanks Tiffany

  • LDJ

    The cake is quite creative, but it’s not a good look for a wedding ceremony. Stick with your traditional lines.

  • Glamour @ Arrow

    Speechless, I love it!!!

    Start practicing for my Chanel bag!!!

  • Otter

    Tacky, tacky, tacky. Did you see on Real Housefraus of Atlanta when one of the ladies had a LV cake. Silly goose.

    I liked the LV Dodge Ram much better.

  • Ginger

    Otter, you sound jealous, jealous, jealous…maybe your spelling(Housefraus?) should be as meticulous as Suga Brown’s amazing creations.

  • rosebudd

    to LDJ

    my understanding is the Gucci Cake was for a 26th birthday party and not a wedding…get your facts straight before commenting incorrectly.

  • brown suga

    Sea-Otter, thanks for the sip of hater-ation juice…ahhhh refreshing cause it’s from a sour lemon like yourself! Get a grip and deal with the fact this cake is a hit whether you like it or not.

  • dela

    I am not a logo bag person in real life, but these bag cakes are fabulous. To me they are like a piece of pop art.

    rosebudd, I am pretty sure LDJ was referring to Megs’ post (second paragraph of Megs’ entry).

  • Tiffany

    Brownsuga – I envy your job! I only wish I had this kind of talent…well done, you!

  • MizzJ

    Brownsuga, you are so talented, this cake is amazing! I would certainly love it for my birthday since it may the closest thing I’ll ever have to any Gucci haha *sob*

  • Melanie

    well…then that is good to know! i know wedding cakes can cost a fourtune…for the time and design, you would think it would cost more! you are very talented! i’ll take a chanel cake please LOL
