I baked a rectangle cake 12 by 10 in. I used four eggs, just a normal vanilla cake. And an 8 in round cake. I cut the round cake in half and iced with butter icing in the center and around it. I covered the round cake and the base which is a rectangle in fondant. I molded the lip sticks, eye shadows and nail polishes with the same fondant.

I made the fondant using Lisa Mansour’s recipe (on You Tube). It is very easy and has never failed me. I also cut the fondant to make the zip. I made the borders neat with butter icing. I used a pizza cutter to make the marks on the make up bag. I placed silver balls with butter icing but the didn’t stick, so I used water. Now I know, one would rather use water to stick on fondant than butter icing.

My teenage daughter was thrilled to say the least.
