I don't remember the last time I've gotten a chance to waste a little bit of time staring at the mirror for a brisk fiddle through my make-up pouch... or think about my blouse not matching the colour of my jeans or wonder if my hair is styled right.
Truth is.. i miss it.
wahhh....I miss it very much.
Making this cake reminded me of my love for beautiful shoes... fashionable handbags and all the other attractive trimmings which make us women feel glamorous and unique. Girls love to show their personality and style through what they choose to wear...and I've been feeling like a run down middle aged lady with a demanding job the past month. Haha... I really should whip those heels back out. I'm young... it really isn't time to let the sexy trimmings retire so soon!
The fun and fashionable lady who the cake was meant for happened to be one of Mom's best friends. Lucky me that prior research on the likes and dislikes of the recipient was fuss-free!
I had found out in advance that she loved the Hermes Lindy ...and I thought I'd attempt to make a miniature bag which was similar in shape. I hope she could tell what I was attempting to replicate. I also had her name written on the sugar shoes as a brand logo so she could keep them. It's always nice to have a cake to cut and devour...but a tiny sugar trinket to keep and remember it by.
This was an incredibly fun one... I love being inspired by fashion, textiles and print.
