suitcase cake

I made this suitcase cake for my son's Stag and Doe party before the wedding..it weighed quite a bit...all chocolate buttermilk cake with chocolate SMBC filling and icing and I covered it with chocolate fondant..the straps are fondant brushed with copper luster dust. The hardware is gumpaste painted with edible gold and the handles are gumpaste/fondant mix brushed with copper luster dust..the luggage tag is same..the Greek phrase book on the top is edible image over fondant...They loved this and lots of people thought it was luggage....
