Suitcases Wedding Cake

I am in love with this wedding cake.

This bride gave us a full sketch of the cake she wanted. All the details were there - the styles, colors, swirls, buckles, luggage tags...everything. What creativity!

So it was up to us to bring it to life and give it the little details like textures and seams that make the suitcases seem so realistic.

The top suitcase was covered with white fondant and decorated with a quilted pattern. At each of the intersection points, we piped a blue dot.

The second suitcase was covered with chocolate fondant and decorated with hand-piped buttercream scrolls & swirls. I got a little creative on the handle and made it ergonomic - see the grooves for the fingers? I'm pretty proud of the handle because it's practically the only detail that wasn't in the bride's sketch!

And the bottom suitcase was covered with white fondant and decorated with a textured blue band mid-way up.

The wedding colors were blue and pink, and I think the pink luggage tags add just the right amount of "pop" to the suitcases!
