Shopping Bag or Cake?

We made this cake which duplicates our client's shopping bag. We loved his bag as it is so unique and colorful. The process was a bit complicated but I think it mirrors his bag quite nicely. 

In order to duplicate his logo and designs we used the Cricut 29-0001 Personal Electronic Cutting Machine - we also have the Cake Cricut but find the Personal works just as well when we use the deep cut blade. We scanned his bag and cleaned up the image using Corel Photo program, traced our images into Sure Cuts a Lot, rolled out our fondant and cut away the images.

The bag was made by carving sheet cakes and stacking as if it were a two-tier cake. We hope you enjoy viewing and please contact us if you have any questions.
