My cousin Sue recently had her 40th birthday. She is not only my cousin but my best friend as well, we have grown up more like sisters than cousins. I had to create her an awesome cake to celebrate her 40th birthday. She loves the Wizard of Oz but I had already made her a wizard of oz cake before. She has a coach purse that is baby blue and just so cute, so I thought well I have been wanting to do another purse cake it has been quite a while. So I decided to create a baby blue sculpted cake purse to look similiar to the coach purse that she has. I have had many instances of people thinking that a cake I have created looks just like the real thing. But the situation I am about to share Took the Cake so to speak!! At my cousins party one of her friends walked up and was looking at the cake, the next thing I know she grabs the handle and goes to pick it up, needless to say the handle was ripped off the cake, she is standing there in complete confusion. I told her that is a cake! She says, “ohhhh I really thought someone had bought Sue a new purse which is why I was trying to pick it up”. I explained that it was a cake that I had made, then she felt really bad that she had broken the handle off. It really was funny to see the look on her face because she just could not figure out what had just happened!! I guess I can look at that moment as a great compliment….
