Love Moschino - sweet sixteen!

Ever since our trip to Rome we knew what we were going to give to Noelle for her 16th birthday:
We brought the beautiful purse from their local flagship store for her. 

The purse was my inspiration for the matching dessert table – which was waiting for her, when she came home from her surfing vacation.
We love Moschino!

How to:

1. Purse-shaped cookies:
Unfortunately any cookie cutters in the shape of bags available in retail stores were much too delicate: the dough stuck to them, the handles didn’t turn out right, the result resembled more a road-kill squirrel than a purse.
I gave up after a few frustrating trials, drew a purse on a piece of stiff cardboard, cut it out and used it as a template for the dough – it worked wonderfully, considering also that I did not even need to cut out that many purses.

2. The big cookies are very well suited for lettering, which is why they were first decorated with fondant icing and then framed with sugar icing.
It’s dead easy to add the lettering, I always use these stamps for the task.

3. I created the mood board using the current collection’s catalogs – you can get them for free in any store.

4. Because Noelle loves chocolate she got chocolate cupcakes and a chocolate cake with raspberry filling.

5. Sources of supply:
Cake stands: HERE
Red and black cupcake liners: HERE
Black confetti sprinkles: HERE
Frame-shaped cookie cutters: HERE
Everything by Blueboxtree
Cookie stamps, alphabet: Amazon
White fondant icing for cake and cookies: Amazon

Noelle’s purse is unfortunately no longer available, but you will find pretty Moschino purses for example at Zalando.

If, on the other hand, you prefer to give Chanel bags as gifts, you can the matching dessert table HERE ;).


p.s. I will announce the winners of the “Dirndl” give-away before the end of this week, thanks for your patience!
