Louis Vuitton Purse Cake

Fashionista cakes are always very popular cake inquiries.  I love making them the exact dimensions so people think that it is actually a purse.  I did one of the most challenging patterns recently... the Louis Vuitton Monogram Multicolore Speedy 30.  It was a surprise 30th birthday cake for my client's wife.
This cake was pretty big - 11.8" x 8.3" x 7.3" (LxHxD) - about 8 layers of vanilla butter cake.  
Here is a view from the back.  I really did underestimated how many logos I needed to paint.  But finally in the wee hours of the morning when  I finished handpainting each side - it was amazing to see it all come together.

I love that you handpainted the logos, that's so much better than using an edible image or another method like that.
