The Suitcase Cake
How do you say “bon voyage” in cake? This luggage cake is the closest I’ve come (so far). Created for a coworker leaving on a three-month tour of South America, this chocolate-buttercream suitcase features fondant travel stickers of the countries on her itinerary, plus our company logo and a San Francisco badge to remind her of home. The buckles and straps are made from modelling chocolate, which is kind of like a cross between the flavor of a Tootsie Roll and consistency of thick playdough. Edible clay. Mmmm.
